We've Upgraded
Knowing this is our slow time in comparison to the rest of the year with crochet, I have been using the time to deal with our enormous growth.

The Crochet Crowd Logo With the help of Ian M, our summer intern, we took his advice to upgrade our image and logo appearance. We retired the round logo we had and streamlined it. You may have been me using this logo on The Crochet Crowd Facebook Page as well as videos that come out. The new logo is in the above banner of this email.

To put into perspective, Our Facebook Fan Page has grown from 17,000 fans to 74,000 this year.

We kicked off our Knot Just Yarn Blog to be a steady stream of crochet information and communications with our fans. Up to 10,000 people per day are visiting our blog. It's so exciting.

Not to forget that we now have a fabulous Crochet Forum for our audience to communicate and interact outside of the world of Facebook.

Our website, The Crochet Crowd, has been moved to a new home behind the scenes to handle the traffic from our fans. Thank you for your support. I never thought this was possible. We know the outages of our website during several upgrades has been anything but fun!  
Sandy & Michael Sellick of The Crochet Crowd
In the summer time, we tend to slow down with our crochet as many of us see crochet as a fall to spring activity. Who am I to argue that having an afghan growing on your lap during the summer isn't necessarily a pleasant experience.

Fall is coming up really soon. Here in Southern Ontario Canada, Daniel and I have the heat on today! We've not had the scorching heat spells as usual. This coolness has kept my interest and love for crochet going strong over the summer.

This Thursday, Friday and Saturday (August 15th, 16th and 17th, 2013) I will be at Spinrite Factory Outlet for the annual massive tent sale.

This Week's Giveaway

I also have a giveaway this week where the entry ends this coming Saturday. Get the details here. It's our Tent In A Box Giveaway.

I love to meet my fans and yarn enthusiasts. In the picture above is Sandy from Sarnia Ontario. She drove nearly three hours to meet me! She had such positive and enthusiastic energy!

Crochet-Arium Exhibit
The Crochet Crowd is constructing a 20 x 30 foot crochet aquarium called "Crochet-Arium" at Creativ Festival this fall on October 25 - 27th.

I am strongly committed to charity. Our official charity partner, Crafting For A Cure is the benefactor for our entire effort and will receive 100% of any donations raised for this exhibit.

Crochet-Arium Giveaway If you would like to participate, I have a giveaway for 1 Lucky Person who contributes 5 creatures or more for our exhibit. The winner can choose a crystal bracelet or a Furls Luxurious Crochet Hook.

Below are 120 free patterns. Cathy, my executive assistant, surfed the net for these fabulous patterns.
