You guys.

I cannot wait to welcome you all to Green Trees Crochet, the store. It’s been a real thing, living in my mind, for about six months now. Next week, it becomes a reality for you, too.

For me, crochet is about mixing nostalgia for the past (everybody’s grandma had a crochet blanket on the back of the couch, right?) with a good dose of innovation for the present and invention for the future. We still make granny squares/circles/triangles/hexagons, but we make and arrange them a hundred different ways now. We still make blankets for our couches, but they’re much more likely to be made with gorgeous muted colors, or wonderful and luxurious hand dyed yarns. We’ve come a long way, baby.

There is an huge, amazing, incredibly diverse community of crochet makers living on the internet and in little pockets out in the wild. I am absolutely thrilled to be able to offer a local yarn shop where they can come together and build a community offline, too.

My sincerest hope is that crochet makers will come to Green Trees Crochet and find a kind and generous community. That they will find the tools and supplies they need and want to make fantastic creations. And that they will be inspired to try new things and to grow together.

That place is what I’m working on making today. What will you make today?
