Dear Crochet enthusiast,

Thank you for being here.

Crochet has been part of my childhood memories having seen precious handcrafts adding their artistic signature in grandma’s home and it also had the element of mystery as I was watching traditionally dressed in dark clothes old ladies, doing some repetitive magic movements with their hands producing fine white lace.

My first true encounter with crochet though, came at the age of 26 and ever since my love for it has grown.

Initially I created doilies and a round table spread -which I finally used as my bed head’s spread- with peacocks.  Gradually, as I was getting more confident with this craft, I upgraded my creations into dresses and tops.

What keeps facinating me with crochet apart from the unlimited creative routes it can lead to, is the sense of calmness and focus into my inner world, while my fingers are holding the hook adding stitches.

This should be considered a very sophisticated type of meditation that can really heal and transform you.

CrochetMania.com made its first appearance when I registered the domain back in August 2004.  I always knew that like me, there were many who have no time to practice this fine art but do love to have crocheted masterpieces created for them.

For years, the site didn’t get enough of my attention,  but I was holding a promise in my heart to make it the absolute point of reference for crochet-enthusiasts from all over the world some day.

This day has now come and  here is the new Crochetmania.com where you can shop precious handcrafts on demand.

Soon you’ll be able to install Crochetmania MOBILE APP to your smartphone or tablet and you’ll be receiving Push Notifications with new intriguing  suggestions and ideas.

Kind Regards,

Sofia Stavropoulou
