Every so often, I get the chance to highlight another fantastic crochet designer – and today, I’m excited to share Kirsten Holloway Designs in the Moogly Designer Showcase!
Kristen Holloway is (drumroll please) the smartie behind Kirsten Holloway Designs! Here’s a bit more about her in her own words:
Hello! I’m Kirsten, the owner of Kirsten Holloway Designs (that should be pretty obvious, but just in case there was any doubt, I’m clarifying it now). 😉 I’m a stay-at-home mom with 3 wonderful children, who loves beauty, and creativity in its many forms. I started crocheting at a young age, but really started seeing it as a passion (and something I could do for a living) in 2014.
My patterns come from life, and all its inspirations–from music, out-of-the-way restaurants, and feel-good movies, to a sweet child curled up under one arm. I am also drawn by the myriad moments that are less tangible: time spent with loved ones, the smell of flowers, and the clean air after a rainstorm. I could keep going, but think you get the drift. It is through these experiences that my patterns come about. Much of what you’ll find on my site has a vintage feel to it. A time of romance, enchanted evenings in the garden; Victorian era charm, with a hint of country romance, lace, ribbons and all the things feminine. The dreamer in me longs for a place to relax, and refresh my spirit. You can probably relate.
So ultimately, whether you crochet these patterns for yourself, a family member or friend, or if you decide to sell the finished products at farmer’s markets, and craft shows, it’s my hope that each completed piece brings a smile to your face, and lifts your spirit. That’s why we create, isn’t it? It’s crafting joy for others.
