Thank you so much for joining me for another Cross Promo Train.  Hope to see you next time!


Hi I'm Amy. In my shop I offer a variety of crocheted items and occasionally I list vintage crochet & knitting pattern books. I enjoy working on custom orders. My customers often come up with the best creative ideas; and sometimes offer me the challenge of creating something I've never done before. It’s always satisfying to take a piece of yarn and create something new from it.



  1. Thanks for making this such a fun week Amy! You are the best!

  2. That is so lovely - tx for adding my Sweet Colour treasury too :)

  3. Great promotions, fabulous team work! A great networking tool within one another too!

  4. Amy! Thanks so much for all your efforts!

  5. This is wonderful!! Very well done! :)

  6. Amy, you wrote such a beautiful summary about the promo train. Thank you for all the hard work you put into this event.

  7. Great job with the blog and managing the promo!

  8. It was a fantastic week - thanks to you for organizing us and this promo and to my team-mates who rock!!!

  9. It was a great week with an awesome team and such talented artists to promote! Thank you Amy for all you did to make this a success! I appreciate all of you!


  10. It was a lot of fun, great idea, wonderful team. :)

  11. Thanks so much for organizing this, Amy! It was my first time participating and it was so much fun! Even though I screwed up a little in the beginning, I think I have the hang of it now for the next one. Can't wait to participate again with another group of amazingly talented artisans and makers!

  12. Wow, so many terrific items! What fun to look at everything in the shops.
