About Me

I’m Trista from Crochets By Trista. I’m a wife to my wonderful husband who is so supportive of me and my business venture. We have two wonderful (sometimes not so much) kids.  Zoe is 9 and Gavyn is almost 5.

I learned to crochet back in 2004 but Picture of Trista Burke, Ownerdidn’t do much with the craft until about 2012.  At the time I was a stay at home mom and I needed a hobby to help me stay busy instead of just sitting in front of the tv and not being productive. 

Over the years I’ve tested patterns for other designers and have wanted to start a crochet business for a few years now but didn’t think that I could really do it. 

In 2019, I joined the Crochetpreneur Business Academy because I decided that I will have a go at this crochet designing business thing.  If I fail, I fail, all that matters is that I tried; I don’t want to fail so I’m putting in a lot of effort into it and I have tons of support from my loving husband and our families. 

My goals for 2020 include starting this blog and just seeing if I can make an impact in the world with my crochet designs and my spin on the craft.  I do consider myself more of a yarn artist rather than a hobby crafter, if that makes any sense at all.

My Mission

Here’s where you come in; My Mission.  I’m optimistic that my followers/customers will find joy and satisfaction in the final products of my creative designs.  As you finish projects I want you to realize your own strengths and know what you are capable of making and doing.  I also want you to take pride in your achievements. This doesn’t apply to just crochet, but life too. My patterns, I hope, will be easy to follow and won’t be very complex.
