Thank you and a Quick Update

Hi everyone! Thank you so very much for all of your support and concern the last couple of weeks. As you may already know, I had emergency surgery on New Year’s Eve and have been at home recovering with many restrictions since.

Thanks to my amazing team of friends and family, my business has not been affected by this. My restrictions have been very limiting yet thanks to Judi Weingarden, my good friend and Director of Customer Relations, Marlon Omdahl, my son and right-hand-man, and my mom, customer service, shipping, and new product releases have been practically seamless!

Shipping And Product Updates:

As many of you can attest, shipping has not skipped a beat and all orders are up-to-date. Marlon and my mom have been delivering your packages to the post office daily. I have been able to create new, beautiful hand dyed colors of many yarns with all of the heavy lifting done by Marlon. And all phone inquiries and emails have been promptly answered by Judi.

“52 Crochet Gifts Book” is up-to-date and running smoothly as well. Week 11 of the pre-order ebook was released on time this week and you can learn all about it and the new patterns HERE.

29 of the 52 patterns have been released so far, and each pattern is also available as a single PDF pattern download as well, should you prefer to order a la carte.

Many of the released patterns also have video tutorials, and I will be continuing to release video tutorials for all the patterns when I get back Into the studio. You can see the existing videos in this 52 Crochet Gifts Book Video Playlist HERE:

Video and Podcast Update:

Unfortunately, all on-camera duties are solely my responsibility and therefore lacking. I have yet to have the strength or energy to be back to the studio making video tutorials, or on location making podcasts at the beach. But the good new is, thanks to the support of my family, friends and all of you, I am getting better day by day and am happy to announce that I have the next podcast scheduled for Friday, January 17, 2020 at 9:00am. You can expect to see new videos tutorials shortly after that! In the meantime, please continue to create, share and inspire today and every day.

xoxo, Kristin
