Big Should Out to JOANN Fabric and Craft Stores for their support of The Crochet Crowd. A few crochet cruisers have already arrived in Florida. Some of the Crochet Cruisers are already on the way to Florida today. Most, including us, are on the way to Florida tomorrow. and Everyone will be assembled together on Monday Morning to board the beautiful Celebrity Reflection Cruise Ship. It is our home for 11 days on a meandering tour of the deep Southern Caribbean Destinations lik...e Aruba and much more.

Behind the scenes, the cruisers on the private group are really being supportive of each other. Helping with advice and it will feel like meeting friends you already know, even though it's just been cyber up until this point.

JOANN Fabrics and Crafts has spoiled us rotten with their help in product gathering and logistics. Our products are now in Florida and will be boarding the vessel on Monday!

Let's the good times roll and our cares and stitches just float away as we hook together as a floating crochet community!

I am a self taught crocheter from a book I got from Walmart about 7 years ago. I had always wanted to learn but the patterns were so daunting. I had also taught myself how to knit from a book, but cou...ldn't get it just right and HATED that any time I messed up I would have to start all over. (Perhaps the more experienced could figure it out easily but I would literally start the whole thing over, or at least have to go back several rows very carefully. I also couldn't do anything but knit stitch, very boring, but hard to do anything else when watching tv!) The more I looked around for nice knitting patterns I always seemed to find more beautiful and exciting looking patterns that were crochet. Finally after teaching myself how to make a scarf using basic stitches I tried to do more elaborate patterns. They were beyond me, but I could follow along videos. I found Mikey on YouTube and was able to figure things out a little easier. Then he brought up people being able to read patterns for themselves instead of having to rely on videos. It seemed insane to me at the time, but after just a little bit of practice, I can crochet pretty much any pattern! I'm even better at it than my own mother who has been crocheting for decades but doesn't know the different stitches or how to read/follow a pattern. I'm so grateful for his time and energy. He makes crocheting fun and modern instead of outdated and corny! See More

I absolutely love watching the videos. I have been inspired to make so many different blankets, afghans, cowls, scarfs & many more ideas. Before I started to follow & watch the videos from the crochet... crowd on YouTube, facebook, & the crochet crowd website I never knew that there were caron cakes. Even just in general Mike has a lot of amazing videos and inspires people from all over. I love crocheting because it's a HUGE stress reliever for me. See More

I loved this video even if I am watching it on Saturday night, four days later. Brenda Lee was a pleasant surprise that shows exactly how Nova Scotians and Cape Bretoners are. Mikey, you were so kin...d to invite her in and offer her tea, Nova Scotia style. The new products are lovely. See More

Mikey taught me how to crochet on YouTube 5 years ago when I lost both of my grandmothers 3 days apart. I needed an outlet for my grief and learning to Crochet was it. I’m forever grateful. This is al...ways my #1 Crochet page on Facebook! �� See More

I only give this group 2 stars, not because of Mikey and Dan, their work is fantastic, but because of the fans. If someone has a different opinion then the majority bully and attack that person.

I enjoy the “free” patterns at The Crowd offers. The patterns are very beautiful and elegant. Mikey is very gracious to inform us of all the new yarn products and offering the testimonials for the patterns.
