The Curio Crafts Room
Hi, my name is Christa and I live in the Northern part of The Netherlands. At a very young age, my mother and grandmother taught me how to sew, crochet, knit and embroider. I loved it all but I loved crochet just that little bit more. Although I can’t remember not being able to crochet, it was only a couple of years ago that I picked up a hook again and only in 2014 that I created my first design. I’m sure I’ll never let go of that hook again. I love the design process and can spend hours puzzling over stitches, shapes, sizes and colour choices. I’m inspired by materials, designs, fabrics, yarns and colours from the 1920s, 30s and 40s. I have surrounded myself with quite a bit of home décor and other objects from that era. The peacock was a very popular design inspiration back then and it has also led me to my very first crochet design. At the moment I’m really interested in finding new applications for my small (peacock) motifs so I’m experimenting quite a bit. I’m also moving more towards designing larger pieces like scarfs and blankets. You can follow everything on my blog TheCurioCraftsRoom. Hope to meet you there!
