SARA DELANEY’S Memaire taught her how to crochet at age seven and to knit at age nine. Driven by a constant urge to craft, she spent her early years inundating her family and friends: scarves, hats, afghans and anything else she could slap paint on or put together with brads, school glue and embroidery floss. After the birth of her two daughters in the early 00’s Sara became more interested in the mechanics of her stitches and the underlying architecture of what she was creating. No longer happy to just make items from other peoples’ patterns, she began to write her own patterns, drawing on her high school clothing construction and design classes and her forgotten childhood dream of fashion design. (After successfully making two human beings, how hard could it be, really?)
Sara has spent the last 4 years here at WEBS bringing crochet to the unhooked masses. She couldn’t be happier with the experience of empowering her students to learn in a way that is comfortable for them and reminding them that “There is NO right way to hold your hook. There is only what is right for you!” She also promises never to teach you crochet her Memaire’s way - chain until you can do it with your eyes closed and your hands behind your back. Although if you need a good party trick... Visit me at http://chickenbetty.wordpress.com/, no box mixes here!
