Other Questions:

Q. Where did you learn to crochet?

A. Many years ago I learned to crochet during a church Young Women activity. Because I’m left handed I sat across from our teacher and mirrored her as she taught the “righties.”

That is where I originally learned, but I recently picked it up again back in October of 2010. I bought a book called, “Learn to Crochet” from Michaels. I have used YouTube to my advantage to watch videos of people actually doing various stitches and techniques. It helped a lot to see people doing what I read about in the book.

A lot of the patterns I use for my hats and shoes are free patterns that I’ve found on the web. I’ve tried to link back to all of them to give them credit. You can check out the tab *Pattern List*.

Q. Can I sell finished products from your patterns?

A. Yes, you have permission to sell finished items made from my patterns. I ask that you credit me with the original design and link back to my page (www.achickwsticks.com). Also, when selling finished products please use your own pictures of the items instead of stealing them from my website. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding!
