A Note From the Editor
It's said that "to everything there is a season," and the same is true with editors. My season as editor of Crochet! magazine comes to an end with this issue.
For over a decade, it has been my joy and privilege to lead this blue-ribbon magazine and see it take a prominent place among the ranks of crochet magazines. I'm proud of the respect and recognition it has gained in the needlecraft industry.So it is with no regrets and much excitement that I hand the reins of Crochet! over to Ellen Gormley. Ellen is well known in the crochet industry as an accomplished designer, teacher, author and crochet expert on the Annie's PBS television show Knit and Crochet Now! She brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to her position as the new editor of Crochet! magazine.
I will still be working closely with Ellen behind the scenes as executive editor of Crochet!, and I look forward to an exciting future with Ellen at the helm.
