This and That

Good Morning Everyone,

A few things happened this week that
make me feel very positive about the
needlework industry. There has been
a renewed interest in both my entrelac
patterns and my tutorial DVD/Video's.
This may be a direct result of the release
of my newest book KNIT OR CROCHET-HAVE IT YOUR WAY and its review on the Lion Brand News Letter,

or it may mean that people are staying
at home more, and are once again turning
to the needle arts for comfort. I did discover that I do not note on my web site
that the entrelac patterns are for entrelac crochet. One customer did think
that they were knitting patterns and was so disappointed when she received crochet patterns instead. I am trying to fix this oversight.

The renewed interest in my free form tutorial Videos/DVD's (I don't have a photo of the DVD's, but both have the same content) is very rewarding to me. Every so
often a new group of knitters and crocheters discover free form and it is immediately reflected in my sales. I love it because, even though I do all kinds of knitting and crochet, free form continues to be my favorite thing to do just for the sheer joy of it. What ever the reason, I love it.

Have a great day,

Margaret..........this post inspired me to get back to entrelac crochet. I wouldn't expect you to remember me, but I took your course on entrelac crochet at the Oakland Convention Center in CA many years ago. I since then have purchased you book and follow you on the net.

My respect to you for all your hard work!

Thanks......... David Thomas MD
