The Countdown to Christmas Begins Now!
At Red Heart we are on your side and are here to help. Each year we feature some lovely holiday designs in July for those of you who do not procrastinate. Now for the rest of us, it is time for the twelve week countdown! Yes, I said twelve weeks. Starting the first week of October we will feature one knit and one crochet pattern every Thursday, on our website and on our mailing list. There will be some exciting new holiday designs and several blasts from the past to get you in the spirit of all things Christmas. Warm up your hooks and needles because it will be here before you know it! We hope your 2014 holiday season will be very merry and bright.
Salena Baca learned to crochet before grade school, and she’s had a passion for the art ever since! After crocheting “in the closet” until her mid-twenties, her crochet world was catapulted to new heights when she found Ravelry and saw that there was an entire world of crocheters to connect with! She began designing patterns that appealed to her own style in 2009, and her work has been published in various craft and crochet magazines ever since! In 2012, Salena united a mass of professional crochet artists by forming the Design Wars Challenge; a network posed as a battle to be won in the crochet arena! After living and traveling all over the world with the Air Force, Salena's husband recently retired, and their family decided to settle in Oregon. Salena is very fond of black licorice, is quite good at Scrabble, and she can (nearly) do 14 push-ups!
