Shoutout to Mary for winning a crotchet hook set from our ongoing contest. Take a look at Mary’s story:

“My Mom taught my older brother to crochet and I would BEG her to teach me, but she kept saying that I was too young.  Finally, when I was seven, she taught me thread crochet. Through the years, crochet has played a major role in my life. It carried me through tough times, when I sold items that I made, both in thread and yarn.  It became my Physical Therapy when I broke my right hand and had to build strength and range of motion back into it.  It was what I specialized in when I worked with dollhouse miniatures and I crocheted with thread finer than sewing thread.  It was crochet I turned to when I wanted to design and sell patterns.  The photo is my Ozark Morning Shawl.”

The Laurel Hill Team

New Set Winner!

Hey Laurel Hill Friends!

We wanted to give a shout out to our set winner of the quarter, Guadalupe Longworth.

Take a peek at his story:

” I was taught to crochet by mother; when I was nine years old. My mother was my inspiration becasuse she self taught herself how to crochet with out the benefit of speaking English. Because yarn was so expensive; I learned to make dolies out of thread and so my journey began. By the time I was in high school my beautiful table cloth was was selected to be part of a very special exhibit at the Anaheim Convention Center. I can honestly say that every project that I have completed has only improved my knowledge of crochet so all projects are my favorite.

I would like to Thank Laurel Hill for making a dream come true because her beautiful crochet hooks have been on my wishlist for a long time. All I can say is Thank You for an awesome gift.

This Weeks Winner!

Congratulations to Jill Smail! 

“My great-aunt tried to teach me to crochet when I was a child. I could never get past the “chain” and finally just gave up. About a year ago, my mom was working on a lap blanket and I asked her to teach me. She showed me a basic single crochet stitch. I was so excited to start my own blanket! Rather quickly I got bored with it and expanded to try a hat. Fast forward to now and I’ve started my own shop with hand made goodies and photography props. Crocheting lets me relax and unwind after a long day! I’ve truly never loved anything more than a hook and my next project in hand (never leave home without it)!”



Congratulations to Erika Hill! 
” I learned to knit and crochet when I was in the fifth grade. I was fascinated with the idea that anyone could make ‘fabric’ with just needles/hook and thread. I watched many young ladies making doilies and was totally captivated! My favorite project is always my ‘next’ masterpiece. I love making vintage looking things for my daughters, and each ‘next’ one is my favorite.”

Good luck with your next masterpiece Erika and congratulations on winning this weeks drawing!

Kind Words Worth Sharing!

Good afternoon to you all!

We recently received this extremely thoughtful and generous review from Mary about the Nova Cubics Platina Needles and I thought it was something worth sharing with you all!

Dear Rick,
There are no words for these SUPERB, WONDERFUL, BEAUTIFUL, COMFORTABLE Nova Cubics Platina needles!!!  Other than your triangular and square Palm wood needles, these are simply the best – even over the Addi Lace Turbos!  Unfortunately, I have two complete Nova Cubics sets (nickel plated, 10″ and 14″), which I only just got about a month ago and will probably never use again – now that these Platina Cubics have come on the scene (I won’t have black hands from the nickel anymore).  I now have a pair each of the 14″, 10″, and 32″ Circulars in #9 (5.5m) and I have just ordered two more 32″ #9’s, as I’m usually involved in several projects at a time.
The only thing that I would add to these Platinas would be a swivel cord, like some of my Kollages have.  But these needles are WINNERS!!!


Thank you so much Mary for your kind words and we at Laurel Hill are so thrilled to hear that our products are working for you!

Have a wonderful rest of your sunday!
