Maker Showcase

I wanted to showcase a few of my crochet maker colleagues and their businesses. With many craft fairs being cancelled this year I wanted to help out in any way I could.

Each of the featured makers specialize in different items that will be great as gifts for your friends and family (or yourself ?). A lot of the items are ready to ship so you can get your shopping done sooner. Custom orders are also an option but check with the maker on more details.
