Crochet is a ‘Granny-science’ that gained popularity in Europe during the 19th century, and now in the 21st century is making its come back.

Crochet is easy to learn, affordable, it can be done anywhere and it covers a wide range of techniques and styles, e.g. filet crochet, tapestry crochet, Tunisian crochet, etc.

Through this site I share my love for crochet, my patterns and experience with you!

Hello ...

Nice to ‘meet’ you! My name is Tanja (nicknamed Tee) and I am living in the Netherlands.

After many years in corporate life as a HR professional, I decided to change my work-work balance. Still working as a part-time freelance HR professional, I dedicate part of my working life to creative ventures, mainly crochet related.

I am believer that arts & crafts, (like sports) can provide relaxation to people in this fast-pacing knowledge driven world, allowing them to increase their potentials through developing new/other skills, but in the end crochet is all about having fun and creating beautiful projects!
