Family Ties: A Passion for Crochet through the Generations

From the time she was eight years old, Karen loved yarn crafting – from shell stitching to embroidery to quilting. But her first love is crochet, a passion that grew from Karen’s warm memories of her mother patiently teaching her and inspiring her with her creativity. Sitting on the front porch as a young girl, stitching away, remains for Karen the beginning of a lifelong passion for the art of crochet.

Years later after Karen married and she and her husband had a daughter of their own, Karen carried on the tradition of teaching her little girl how to crochet too. With her own mother living with them, it quickly became a three-generation passion and Karen remembers that it was a rare time when her mother did not have a needle or a hook in her hand. She was thrilled that her own daughter took to the craft even before she was a teenager, increasing her skills during college and beyond.

Along the way, Karen discovered Laurel Hill’s ebony crochet hooks and selected them as her favorite. Last Christmas, when she was thinking about the perfect gift for her daughter she knew that a complete set of Laurel Hill ebony hooks was the answer. And, as it turns out, her daughter was delighted.

“I have always been so happy with Laurel Hill’s quality products and extraordinary customer service,” says Karen. “My daughter feels the same way and has told me time and again how smooth and wonderful the hooks are to work with.”

Karen’s passion bridges the generations, creating memories that last a lifetime. At Laurel Hill, we are thrilled to be part of a family legacy, one that ensures a bright future for crochet and yarn crafting.
