Happy 15th Anniversary

I wanted to acknowledge Crochet Cabana's 15th anniversary on the WWW. It's been a fun and interesting ride. There have been many changes since 1997, particularly in myself! I've learned a lot in the past 15 years, both about crochet and about being a website owner.

We're still working on the new web site. As you can imagine it's a humongous task but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

I am presently going through patterns and updating where needed. I can't actually work every pattern, but I have found a few things that needed to be changed, mostly on the older ones.

I plan to put up some patterns you haven't seen in many years. Some almost as old as the web site but I think still good for today's crocheters. My patterns generally fall in the easy to intermediate category. Favored colors change over the years, but the same patterns can be used with many different color schemes with good result

The biggest change will be the use of more video tutorials and less pictures. I've said this before, but I wanted to emphasize it again so that those who work better with pictures can have the opportunity to either work the tutorials now or save off the pictures for later (for your own use only - don't post anywhere). The pdf files I have made for teachers do contain the pictures and are available for purchase by anyone who desires them. I am hopeful, however, that most of my readership will be able to use the videos without a problem. Remember the pause button is your friend! :-)

It's been a delight to serve the crochet community the past 15 years. I hope to be able to continue to do so for many years to come.

Let's take a walk through memory lane. Here are some of the banners used for Crochet Cabana through the years.

And the new banner ... heh You didn't really think I'd show you, did you? Soon. It will be soon. I will give you a hint. It is not like any of these others. :-)

Happy crocheting!


  1. Wow! Happy Anniversary Sandie! Thanks so much for all you've done for the crochet community online.
