Show and Tell for Crocheters
Share and Brag About Crochet

Yup! This is just like in elementary school where you had the opportunity to 'show and tell'. We are fine with a little bragging too :).

Share a picture of your finished crochet item, tell us why you like vintage crochet patterns, tell us about your favourite pattern, share what you are currently working on, or show and tell any other crochet related thing.

We love to hear from our visitors (you) and see the vintage patterns that you create. In fact, it is one of the main reasons we have created this website. We are sure the other visitors will love to hear your story too.

Are you ready? Then it is show and tell time!
