About Shelley

Hi, Im Shelley and I love granny squares. I love nothing more than sitting down to play with my hook and yarn to design a new granny square. I do it whenever I get the opportunity. As I taught myself to crochet 40 years after my first granny square as a child, I know how confusing it can be with so many resources available on the Internet.

And so, I have patterns for all skill levels from complete novices to those who really know what they’re doing. I am all about teaching you the skills you need to elevate your crochet, showing you how to apply your learning to more and more complex patterns as you build your skills.

I love to teach and do so when I can in person around Australia (and hopefully beyond soon) in yarn stores, at retreats and for community groups.

I live and design on Gunditjmara Country in Southwest Victoria, Australia with my hubby. Our 3 children have flown the nest, spreading their crafty wings on their own.

I have published 6 books of granny square fun and am always working on more.

I love to teach crochet at workshops and retreats. Click the button to see the workshops I have coming up.

I send weekly newsletters full of crochet goodness. You can sign up for them here.

I’d love to ooh and ahh over your work, so add the #spincushions tag to your makes when sharing them on Instagram.

Thanks for stopping by. I look forward to connecting with you through crochet.
