Spring 2013 Newsletter
I hope you are enjoying the spring weather that has finally arrived!
I am thrilled to announce my debut on DVD! Back in February, I took a snowy trip to Loveland Colorado to shoot a DVD about Tunisian crochet with the folks at Interweave. Here we are in May, and the DVD is now available for purchase! Yes, you get 2 hours of time, just me and you, to learn all about Tunisian crochet. It's really very complete, and you can go from beginner to advanced just by studying what's shown in the video, including beginner and advanced stitches, Tunisian in the round with a double ended hook, Tunisian entrelac, Tunisian cables, and much more. Check out these links below to purchase the DVD or an instant download into your computer.
And guess what - we are doing a givewaway of one copy of the DVD. Please comment below about why you are interested in Tunisian crochet, and one winner will be selected to receive the DVD in the mail.
This video is a great companion to my book, The New Tunisian Crochet, published by Interweave earlier this year. It has been getting great reviews! Here are some links if you'd like to read them.
And here's a podcast I did with Marly Bird about it: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/yarnthing/2013/03/13/the-new-tunisian-crochet-with-dora-ohrenstein
Some of the projects you'll find in the book are on this page. I'm so grateful to all the designers who contributed their wonderful projects to the book - thank you Vashti Braha, Doris Chan, Lily Chin, Lisa, Daehlin, Andrea Gracierena, Margaret Hubert and Charles Voth.
Lastly, i want to mention the 2nd Vogue Knitting crochet magazine, just released this month. The crochet community has reacted with great excitement to Vogue's comtinuing commitment to crochet. You can see my design for that issue below. Not surprisingly, it's Tunisian Crochet!
Look out for several more designs, some Tunisian crochet and some regular crochet, in upcoming issues of Crochet! magazine and Crochet World. I'm also writing regularly for Annie's Talking Crochet newsletter.
That's it for now, wishing you a fruitful day! Best, Dora
