Launching January 30th, 2014 is the latest edition of Crochet Savvy Magazine. It’s a free ‘digital only’ magazine that you can access. It’s loaded with great stories and patterns that crocheters will love.
The Editor-in-Chief, Keturah approached me in early December to see if I would be willing to do an interview. The magazine issue is dedicated to Men. I must admit, I did laugh a bit because me, being classfied as manly, is a bit of a joke… even to me.
Keturah’s questions were food for thought and I will say that I took nearly 6 hours of writing down my answers for the interview. I will say to you though, I’m not sure what she has written, I just have answered the questions as openly as I could. Most of the questions were in relationship to men being in the crafting industry. What are some of the hurdles and restrictions men face when being in an area that is dominated by women. I used to think like that many years ago, today… I just function to the best of my ability. Not everyone will like me, nor appreciate what I have to offer. That is life… accept it and move on.
The question of me being male in the yarn arts isn’t a question in my mind anymore. I’m here, I Hook and I’m proud of it! I am what I am and feel I am at the right moment in my life for everything that is upon me today. I will say though, I never expected to be working the insane hours I do each week. My passion trumps any tiredness and exhaustion I feel. In a regular job, I would be gunning out the door at the said time… Even tonight, 6:30 pm on a Sunday… I’ve been working since 8 am this morning. My passion makes my job exciting and fun.
I was really open in my answers and is the first time to be featured on the front cover of a crochet magazine. Look for this coming up for launch on January 30th, 2014.
