    I would also like to say how much I appreciate your site and all the beautiful work you do, as well as the help and instructions which are so very well explained.
    You have really inspired and encouraged me to go forward with crochet which I recently began to practise again after many years, and so have ordered your books and eagerly await their arrival.
    Thank you Renate.

    You’re most welcome & I’m pleased to know that I’ve been able to help & inspired you to once again continue your crochet journey

  7. Thank you. I really appreciate your giving away good patterns for nothing. I last crocheted about 35 years ago and it has been a real eye-opener discovering your beautiful work online and your books. I am inspired.
    Your online diagrams of stitches and techniques are the best I have seen and will be a great help as I increase my repetoire.
