Creator Profile : : Julies Crochet Array
Julies Crochet Array is a collection of original, unique, fun and affordable crochet items.
Creative production Ethos:
To keep colourful, fun and extremely well made crochet creations in my shop. Although my products are low priced doesn’t mean they are low quality. It is because I enjoy crochet and love to get it out there!
At the moment I have bags, bracelets, necklaces, chokers and bookmarks in my shop. I very rarely follow a pattern, if I do, I tend to tweak it. I also love to do custom creations!
I have to say my chokers, because I have never seen anything like them in any other shop.
Favourite music to listen to when creating:
Depends on what mood I’m in but I’m a huge fan of Gary Puckett and the Union Gap, The Foundations , Josh Groban and Tom Jones.
One thing Julie would love to do within the next 10 years:
Although I love my full time job I want to be a “recycled teenager” and travel around Australia with my partner. I can still crochet while I’m travelling too! How good is that??
How Julie got started:
My Mum taught me to crochet, knit, sew etc. She has always being doing one craft or another, so I guess it’s in my blood.
This comes from all directions, but I think colour is my main inspiration. It always starts with colour. Do I want to work with yarn, wire or cotton today? Mmmm… now lets add some beads…
Goals for the future:
My main goal is to add a wider variety of items to my shop. I want to continue crocheting forever! Also for people to enjoy my products.
