Faye has been a crochet tutor for the past 7 years and designing for three. She was first taught to knit & crochet as a child by her Grandmother. During this time Faye has been running Unravel & Unwind, a craft space in Rochester but, as a result of the pandemic, has moved classes and craft & chats online via Patreon and YouTube.
I started crocheting as a child; my Dad taught me. I love the versatility of crochet and that it is no longer granny squares and doilies, although these still have their place. It is about colour and creativity; pushing the accepted boundaries, and it doesn't matter whether you wear it, play with it, or hang it on the wall.
I started making up my own patterns followed by teaching and producing kits. The business quickly out grew the house so I opened a shop on the high street. The shop is not just for buying the latest yarns and craft products: it has become a community hub, with people popping in for coffee and a chat.
I am a crochet designer, more by accident than design. Having learned to crochet as an adult, and not being able to find a pattern for the blanket I wanted to make that I could see in my head, I made up my own pattern. More designs followed and before I knew it, I was selling my patterns and having them published in magazines.
My full time job is in publishing and I live in the Fens with my husband and three children, who all ignore/support/tolerate my yarn stash and collection of WIPs to varying degrees. If Iím not crocheting, Iíll be baking, reading, sewing or knitting.
