The crocheting methods I employed on Etsy are described on this page. Since 2006, I have sold there. I wrote about my PDF patterns while hand-crocheting real hats. I sell my patterns and blog about my skills full-time from 2020 to the present. It's good to concentrate on activities I enjoy.

My grandma introduced me to homemade crafts when I was a young child and she is the one who introduced me to crochet. Grandma, a retired educator, spent her final years crocheting something for everyone. I latch hooked rugs while she crocheted blankets. We purchased the yarn we needed. We were known to others as the craft hookers.

For my strawberrycouture Etsy store, I provide explanations and answers regarding the crocheting methods I employ in my hat patterns. In my tutorials, I demonstrate chain stitching and crocheting magic circles. What makes a good business name for crochet?

Semi-Lined Sewing People Girl With Sewing Machine

As a hobby, I sewed clothing. Shapes and colors started to appear gradually in my thoughts. They took up much of my college study time (1989-1991). I did not consider crafts to be a secular industry.

After my second year of college, I held a variety of jobs. I worked as a cook for the United States Army for five years. I learned to work hard from it. After every meal, we had to finish a production schedule. For instance, we needed to determine how many pounds of beef we would need to prepare for 500 guests.

Frying Pan and Spatula

To order food rations, determine the number of individuals to feed. Observe the directions on the recipe card. Our mess hall was inspected. To ensure we complied with guidelines, think of a cafeteria. Check to see if the food was at the proper temperature. However, temperatures between 40 and 140 degrees F are dangerous. Ensure that nobody becomes ill, above all. The importance of customer service. Through this experience, I learned the importance of client satisfaction. True grit gets results!

I served a 1-year tour in Korea as a specialist, the rank of E-4. I worked the job of a sergeant. This is equivalent to a boss in the civilian world. Bosses in general still have to answer to a higher boss. It taught me how to talk to people. I can't talk down to them any old way I want. Treat people with respect and communicate with them.

Business woman

After serving in the US Army, I started two failed small businesses. The first one was a small home-based sewing business called “Custom Fitting Designs”. We lived in government living quarters. My husband still served in the army by this time. I created custom clothes for a small clientele. An officer’s wife brought me her fabric and sewing pattern for a formal dress to wear at an Officer's Ball with her husband.
