Hello and thank you for taking a minute out of your busy day to learn more about TinaCrochet! We make women's fashion clothing and accessories by hand using yarn to create wonderfully intricate crochet designs. Everything in our shop is designed and handmade by our small team of talented crocheters.
My name is Tina. I love all things crochet and I'm not the only one in my family with skills in this area; my aunt is amazingly talented and other members of my family also have talents with a crochet hook! We have over 30 years' experience making beautiful crochet items.
I learned to crochet from my grandma as a little girl when I was about six years old and I've always loved it. I crocheted baby shower gifts, granny square blankets, baby shoes, baby beanies and dolls for my daughter during her first two years of life when I was a full-time stay at home mom.
Creating simple things with yarn and thread is a very fulfilling way to pass the time. There is just something about getting wrapped up in a wonderfully handmade item with love in every stitch. I really enjoy every moment spent creating. When it was time to consider coming back to work, I decided to start my own business making and selling handcrafted gifts and I also set up as a supplier for crochet accessories.
There are currently four of us working as a team in our shop. Judy handles customer service, Jane is a designer and maker and Michelle is also a maker. I handle the marketing as well as designing and making items for our shop.
We started our online business in 2012. I love it and feel very grateful for the opportunity to be part of this team. The online shop allows our products to reach more clients and wholesalers than we would be able to touch if we were only selling in local markets. It also lets us provide fair and flexible employment opportunities within our local community for stay at home moms and other people who work from home.
All of the items in our shop are made to order by our team members per the details in the listings, but please contact us if you would like an item in a different color or size.We are open to expanding our team! If you love creating beautiful designs in crochet, send us a convo with some examples of your work.
