SheilaSchnauzies is the “Creative Crocheter” Contributor on Squidoo

sheilaToday we’re pleased to introduce you to SheilaSchnauzies. She’s our “Creative Crocheter” Contributor on Squidoo.

Tell us a little bit about your niche topic.
Crochet, the art of turning thread or yarn into beautiful designs just using a crochet hook, is my niche topic. Crocheting has been around for many hundreds of years and the art is usually passed down to younger generations by older or experienced crocheters. There is virtually nothing that cannot be created with crochet! There are infinite designs to be made along with the many thousands of published designs already out in the world.

Tell us about the moment you fell in love with your topic. Was it an immediate thing or did it happen over time?
Oh, it was probably instant! As a young girl I would sit and watch my mom and my grandma crocheting beautiful, intricate thread doilies. The first time I ever looked through one of their pattern books, I remember being totally fascinated and thinking, “I want to do THAT!”

Who had the most influence in your life?
In terms of Crochet, it had to be my mother, followed closely by favorite designers Elizabeth Hiddleson, Alice Brooks, Laura Wheeler and Josie Rabier.
