Recommended: Hookey and Crochet Liberation Front

There are two new excellent resources for crocheters on the web: Hookey and Crochet Liberation Front.

Both sites are run by an incredible lady, Laurie A. Wheeler, who seems to be everywhere at once, promoting and encouraging fellow crocheters by tweeting, retweeting, and commenting on blog posts. Hookey is a part of the Crochet Liberation Front experience.  Here is a the opening paragraph on the About CLF  page:

What is the CLF?
Lead by Laurie A. Wheeler ( aka Fearless Leader) the Crochet Liberation Front (CLF) is a  group of many thousands, who love crochet for what it is, what it can be, and the media into which it will evolve. Crochet techniques are always in development, and evolving as our world evolves. We love crochet and we are proud to let others know about what we do.

With a mission to “To promote crochet and support the hands and hearts that wield the hooks, by building community, being the resource for all information crochet, and by hosting events and classes.”  There is also a membership service with different levels of membership (starting with the free membership) with the goal of developing ” real and valuable professional skills for designers, tech editors, pattern testers for independent crafters and artisans”.

Hookey.org, “A place where crochet lovers to play”, is a community within CLF where crocheters can blog, share on the Facebook-like news feed, upload photos and shop for yarn, books, and supplies.

Laurie is a tremendous supporter and promoter of all things crochet “with a passion for helping the little guy become strong”.  Here’s Laurie introducing herself
