We got another new magazine in at the shop this week.
Crochet Traditions is here, full of interesting articles, photos of intricate crocheted heirlooms, and patterns and techniques to keep your hooks busy.
I was particularly intrigued by an article on tobacco twine crochet, a regional crochet tradition local to North Carolina. According to the article, the Person County Museum of History in Roxboro is home to several incredible crochet pieces made from tobacco twine during the 1930’s. As a lover of fiber arts and a student of Southern history, I was so pleased by the intersection of the two in this article. Come by the shop to get a copy of Crochet Traditions if this is up your alley, too!
