If you’ve spent any time here on the Crochetpreneur blog, you know that my passion and mission is helping women to build their yarn-based businesses in order to have the financial freedom to create a life they love. If you’re looking to start a crochet business – or grow on that has grown stagnant and struggling – you’re in the right place!

My crochet businesses, both my designs and products from Made with a Twist, and this blog and it’s associated products and services, have afforded me the opportunity to work from home in my pjs, to travel extensively with my husband whether to a fancy resort or a backwoods campground (we love it all), and to be the full-time caretaker of our infant grandson while his parents are working. This is the life I’ve always wanted!

I want that for you, too.

How to Turn Yarn Into Money

This blog is, primarily, for women who are seeking a better life through yarn. 🙂

I write for women who want to live life on their own terms, who are tenacious and hard-working and are willing to put in the time and effort to build a business that will bring them the freedom to stay home with their kids or travel or sit around in their pjs all day (or all of these). Whatever success looks like for you, I will be your biggest cheerleader.

As a consummate creative, I’ve always been interested in making….making art, making jewelry, making handmade fashions, but I have a variety of other interests as well. I enjoy writing, traveling (as I said, above) and speaking into the lives of women as a psychotherapist and coach. So, I’m just the kind of person who loves doing all-the-things. When I found blogging, it was like I’d hit the jackpot because I can combine all of my passions – helping, writing, and making – into one perfect little business.

I used to work my crochet business full-time, but now that I’m a full-time grandma, I’m working in the margins of life – early in the mornings, during naptime, and after dinner – and I still love it. It’s the perfect situation for me and my family!

What might be the ideal situation for you?

I want you to know that you CAN make money with your crochet talents and skills. Whether you love designing, making products, teaching, or writing…there is a place for you in the world of crochet. You can work online or offline, full- or in the margins of life (like me). Your goals may be big or small. Whatever they are, I’m here to help guide you through the process and help you be as successful as you want to be.

So, let’s dive in!

As I create more articles on these topics, I’ll be sure to come back and add more links here. In the meantime, grab yourself a cup of coffee and enjoy these helpful posts:
