The Secret Crocheter Revealed…

My name is Nicola and I’m The Secret Crocheter – to be honest this is possibly the worst kept secret of all time!

I live in Wiltshire with my husband Frank and, as well as crochet, I love cups of tea, chocolate biscuits and bird watching.

Crochet is definitely in my blood; both my mum and nan can crochet – it was actually my mum who taught me when I was about 9 years old. And thank goodness she did, as I really don’t know where I’d be without it.

I’ve never really considered myself to be overly artistic or creative but being a primary school teacher for the past 16 years, I suppose I must have been! I started to crochet as a kind of stress reliever from the pressures of the day job.

And so, The Secret Crocheter was born.

Fast forward a few years and these days you’ll find me in The Crochet Cabin teaching other people how to crochet or running my own workshops (I knew all those years of being in education would come in handy one day!)

When I’m not teaching, I’m designing new patterns and kits, or crocheting gifts – all of which I sell at local craft markets, through some local shops and also on Etsy.

Crochet is a huge part of my life and I’m passionate about sharing the crochet love with as many people as possible. I love showing people all the wonderful things you can do with crochet, and I love writing patterns which are easy to follow and accessible. And most of all, I love Making it Cool to Crochet!
