About Posh Patterns
Elegant Crochet Patterns & Knitting Patterns
Hi! My name is Tammy, and I am the lady behind Posh Patterns. :-) I am located in Wisconsin, United States.
My adventures in knitting and crochet began about 16 years ago, when my younger daughter was born. It quickly evolved into a much-loved hobby, beginning with crochet, and knitting to follow. I essentially taught myself how to do both, mainly with how-to books from the library. My hobby soon led me to designing my own projects, and then eventually into a business of designing.
My patterns and designs range from classic and elegant accessories, to fun and whimsical pieces--all of them perfectly suited for kids and grown ups alike! I really like to get my inspiration from anything that draws my eye. And, when a scarf, hat, or accessory of any kind gets my attention and makes me think, "that looks like it would be wonderful to wear," I try to design something that would make others think that too.
I also take great pride in the way that I do the technical writing for my patterns, and I strive to produce very clear and logically written directions. Since I had only been crocheting and knitting for short amount of time, before I began designing, it was almost out of necessity that I wrote them in a way that was simple and easy to understand. I send all of my patterns to "pattern testers," so that they have the greatest chance of accuracy. Only after I receive the green light, from them, do I offer my designs for purchase.
Another important aspect of my business is the level of customer service that I provide. I feel that it's incredibly important to be there to answer questions from your customers, should a question arise.
If you aren't a knitter or crocheter yet, I urge you to give it a go. Knitting and crocheting can offer a truly relaxing, and almost meditative, experience. If you do already knit and/or crochet, and you decide to try one of my designs, I hope that you enjoy it! That is my main goal behind my business--happy knitting and crocheting customers. :-)
Thank you for taking the time to read about my shop!
