So this year I first saw Vickie Howell  when I was washing my hands in the bathroom but I didn't want to be a creeper so i just smiled and freaked in my head! I knew that I would be able to find her at the Yarnspirations booth.

Yolanda and I planed to meet up and WOW the shawl she made was stunning!

Yolanda is the All Crafts Channel on youtube and has a huge following. She started her channel to teach other women at her church. I had a great time walking around with her! 

Last year I first heard about the Crafty Chica and started following her on twitter. She post the most inspiring projects. 

Last but not least it was a true treat running into Jenny from AllFreeCrochet! Jenny,Christine, and Simone have helped my career as a blogger and crochet designer so much! I have learned so much from them!  Here are some of the other websites run by the parent company Prime
