Hello Crochet Friends! Thanks for stopping by and supporting me!

Roots Ethiopia

Roots Ethiopia partners with communities in Ethiopia to turn local ideas into lasting change. They work together to improve schools, educate children, enable livelihoods, and include everyone. Donating to Roots Ethiopia is just one of the ways I like to “give back”. They help families in the region where I was born and that’s very special to me. Also, if you’d like to help me and my family return to Ethiopia to see the library/science lab I built and to meet the children in my birth village who use those new facilities please consider donating to my GoFundMe. Thank you crochet friends!

Introducing Jonah’s new amigurumi “lovey” kits!

Jonah teamed up with Circulo to create 4 different lovey kits for you to crochet or give as a gift. Either way, a child is going to love the end result and likely cherish it forever. Jonah still has his lovey from when he was a baby! The kits have everything you need to make the projects. They are rated as “intermediate” in regards to difficulty. You’re going to love this high end project.

“My daughter will treasure the handmade crisscross baby blanket forever! It is so soft and she carries it with her wherever she goes!”

Sara A.

 “Your story is very inspirational. I bought your book for my son who has now taken up crocheting. He loves it and it relaxes him too.

Tyler M.

“I can’t say enough about your Hand Salve. I have bought much more expensive versions of this all natural salve and yours is the best by far! This stuff really works wonders!”

Linda C.

I couldn't help myself! I bought all 10 of your kits and gave them to kids in my life. I think crafting is so important to our mental well-being. P.S. The Koala is my daughter's favorite!

June D.

I love wearing your tees and helping you spread the love of crochet!

I love my new Jonah Jacket. I got the ivory color and the patches really look nice on it. So many people compliment me when I wear it and I tell them all about you (if they don’t already know!).

Tony F.

I gave everyone in our crochet club one of your pins and they really liked them. It made a nice Christmas gift for them. Thank you.

Kay D.

All of your tutorials are great but I really liked the pink shawl you made. I followed along and made a light green one- you are a great instructor young man!

Beverly W.

I bought some of your salve to help with my hands after gardening. I don’t use garden gloves when I garden so they get kind of rough looking. 
I love using it on my feet and heels!!!!  Elbows too.  It is a great softening formula and helps to heal my feet/heels after long distance running.
