Crochet Inspirations Newsletter


Since September 2010 I've been publishing a popular, information-rich crochet newsletter every other Thursday (or so). 
This is issue #48,
"Diagonal Tunisian Crochet Discovery"
As of March 2013 I've produced almost 50 issues and have thousands of subscribers! More people subscribe daily.

My three goals for Vashti's Crochet Inspirations Newsletter:

1. To say something new about crochet. I love exploring and thinking about crochet stitches and techniques. It's a journey for me and I welcome companions. My strongest motivation while serving on the board of directors for the Crochet Guild of America was CGOA's mission statement: furthering the growth and development of my beloved crochet. 
#44 "Dainty Eyelets for Winter Lace,"
a popular recent issue.


2. To share my different kinds of crochet developments all in one place with quick updates. For example when I: 
  • Publish a new downloadable crochet pattern, e-book, etc;
  • Write a new post at any of my four crochet blogs such as this one;
  • Create a new stitch video or step by step photo tutorial;
  • Offer a crochet class in person or online;
  • Am interviewed, win an award, etc.;
  • Find important news about crochet that I think we should all know about.
3. To offer crocheters an exciting alternative to those newsletters in my inbox that are really just advertisements to delete!  
Issue #16
"Flavor Burst" Crochet
My vision for a newsletter that's worth MY time to write is: if I were a subscriber of Vashti's Crochet InspirationsI hope I'd look forward to it, and be so inspired that I pick up a crochet hook and save a print out of the issue to read again. 

As a professional crochet designer, teacher, and independent digital publisher, a newsletter lets me connect with fellow crocheters in a way that I enjoy the most (instead of gunking up the internet with more advertising and fake content LOL!).
