I am originally a Training and Development Professional with 14+ years experience in coordinating and delivering training for organisations. My love for crochet has spanned my career. I learnt how to crochet when I was 12. I decided to turn this hobby to a business when I realised the job market was becoming challenging.
In 2015 the organisation I worked for closed its doors. I decided it was time to turn my gift into a business and so Simply Crochet was born. The focus of the business has changed based on customer demand. The product offering has expanded from accessories to include household items and patterns. Services are now offered which include: teaching crochet and coaching of crochet entrepreneurs.
I have since taken up an opportunity in my field with another organisation. However, I still continue to work on the growth and expansion of Simply Crochet. My initial reason for establishing Simply Crochet has changed from the time the business was established. I not only want to become self-sufficient and earn an income outside an employer. I also want to share my gift, teach women and girls how to crochet, and hone my creativity.
