Barbara Summers

My Bio

 

I was taught to crochet by my Polish mother-in-law Henryka, in 1973 whilst I was residing in Poland for a year... and over the years it has grown into a much loved hobby...  in recent years I sold my creations at markets in the Northern Rivers of New South Wales, Australia and in Spitalfields, London, UK.

Today, I reside again in the UK and spend quite a bit of my time travelling and simply enjoying life....  as a result my passion for crochet has now evolved into creating simple, practical and beautiful headwear, neckwear and handwear patterns.
