Susan Lowman loves to crochet -- especially
with crochet thread -- and can't imagine a day without crochet! Susan learned to crochet in the 1970s and has been designing professionally since 1999. Her very first published design, Snowflake Doily & Coaster, was purchased by Annie's and sold as a kit in 2000. Since then, Susan has had more than 150 original crochet designs published in various books, magazines and leaflets. She is a frequent contributor to Crochet World
magazine, published by Annie's. In 2012, a collection of her creative dishcloths was also published by Annie's in a pattern book called Wiggly Crochet Dishcloths
One of Susan's professional achievements was receiving a "Flamie Award" in 2011 for "Best Crochet Design for 3-D Objects" for her Dragon Ship design, which was published as a web bonus in Crochet World
magazine's February 2011 issue.
Susan is a proud member of CGOA (Crochet Guild of America), secretary on the CGOA Board, liaison to the Masters Committee, as well as co-chair and senior portfolio reviewer for the Masters Committee. As a Craft Yarn Council Certified Crochet Instructor and Teacher, she teaches regularly at the annual CGOA Chain Link Conference.
Susan owns and operates her own website, TheCrochetArchitect.com
, where she blogs about crochet. You can see photos from her video shoot and trip to Annie's headquarters in Berne, Ind., at her website. Susan is also a technical crochet editor, having edited patterns for Crochet Today
magazine for 5 1/2 years and for Creative Partners, LLC since 2004.
Susan is thankful for the gift of creativity that God has given her and cannot imagine a day without crochet in one form or another!
