More About Our Company

MicheleTooWelcome to Crochet by Michele.

I LOVE Crochet. It is my joy and sometimes, my pain in the butt. I have been crocheting since I was a child and I am primarily self taught. I love experimenting with new fibers and stitch combinations.

Often times, when I come up with new designs or am working on a project, people will ask me about it. So I wanted to start this blog to talk about crochet, stitches, designs, color combos, patterns… you name it. ALL THINGS CROCHET! (and sometimes a little extra)

Sell In Person Card Readers: Which Is Best For You?

Woot woot! Hello summer festival & craft fair season. I love it because I love meeting artisans and vendors who normally just sell online. It is a unique opportunity as an artisan and a customer. As a customer it is a chance to meet the makers. It is also a chance to possibly connect with people for new collaborations and opportunities. As an artisan, it is awesome because I get to meet and interact with my customers. That is such a joy and gift to someone who runs a primarily online based business. But selling in person means taking payments and not many carry cash any more. So we need POS & credit card processing...

Stitch & Hustle

  Hi Everyone! I know I haven’t posted in a while.  The truth is, coming out from behind the scenes where I lived in my production life to be the face and owner of a business was a big transition. Still is in fact. It is a constant struggle against my nature. I prefer being behind the camera rather than in front of it. It is part of why I struggled so much with my blog. It always felt to focused on “me” and I was not comfortable with that. Letting it go stagnant was a relief. But I also missed the opportunity and platform to share my work and creations. A place to...
