Crochet is an Art, traditional one which has been around since years. We, a Mother-Daughter Duo are self-taught Crocheters. Why did we learn it?? There was no particular reason but I already knew a bit of knitting since school and I was always interested in something artistic. We chose the Crochet Art.
We have read many of you saying that your Grandmothers and Great Grandmothers used to crochet and taught you. This is called a contribution. However this was not the case with us, we tried and tested things from youtube videos since 4 years now and learnt whatever we know today. Only a few days ago we got to know that my Grandmother used to crochet and had some books (which we will get now). I am so excited. We both have never seen her, so we never knew this.
So back to the topic of contribution now, what is contribution??? Yes, giving something. It can be anything. What we are doing now is also a contribution to the crochet community. Let us see what exactly we mean by contribution.
You can Contribute Towards The Crochet Art too!!
If You Don’t Know The Art You Can Still Help
Encouragement: Giving encouragement to people who are crocheting is the best you can do if you yourself do not know how to crochet. Encourage others, see what they do, how they do, value their gifts, their passion. This is a beautiful art and you should be proud of that someone who makes things all by herself/himself out of just a ball of yarn.
Buy Things From Them: We would generally ask people to buy handmade stuff, but since this is crochet website let us say you should go ahead and buy crocheted stuff. It is always made with so much love passion and the most important thing skill that they have built over the years.
Donate: Donating doesn’t always mean money. You can donate Yarn to people who crochet for charity. that will be a great contribution towards society too. You can meet them in person and see how they are using up your yarn to make lovely goodies to distribute to less fortunate people.
