Amy Solovay is a freelance writer, designer and educator who has a passion for crochet.
From June 2009 - May 2014, Amy managed and maintained the crochet site at About.com. At that time, she designed original crochet patterns, wrote tutorials, maintained the crochet blog, and directed the work of outside contributors who also created content for the crochet site.
Amy has been crocheting since childhood.
Starting in 1997, she began her career as a textile designer. She designed knitted, printed and woven fabrics for mass production.
Starting in 1998, Amy began collecting vintage crochet patterns. She also sold vintage crochet patterns on the Internet for a time period that lasted about 10 years.
In 2009, she began sharing her own original crochet pattern designs online for other crocheters to enjoy.

I hope you will continue to enjoy the crochet patterns, tutorials, crochet classes and other resources I have published on this website. To the best of my knowledge, About.com staff intends to maintain the pages I created for this network, possibly even editing them (at their discretion) to keep them relevant and up-to-date for you.
If specific questions arise about my patterns, tutorials or online crochet classes, I invite you to contact me through my website. If you have general crochet questions, both our crochet FAQ and the crochet forum are fantastic resources. You can also try contacting the current crochet expert, if someone is available in that capacity at the time your question arises.
Thanks so much for your interest in my work. I really appreciate it.
