ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Drew Emborsky, aka The Crochet Dude®, was taught to crochet at age five by his mom while snowbound in Lake Tahoe. After studying fine arts in college and doing the "starving artist" thing for a few years, he found solace in crocheting for charity while grieving the passing of his mother. It was during this time with the charity group that he became known as "The Crochet Dude®," which then led to the launch of his wildly popular blog of the same name in 2005. Drew has been the crochet expert for five years on the hit show Knit & Crochet Now! airing currently on PBS nationwide. Drew has a line of signature crochet hooks and accessories from The Crochet Dude® available all over the world. Most recently he launched his own brand of yarn featuring the debut colorways “Decades” and “Gemstones.” He has been featured in national publications including BUST Magazine, Interweave Crochet, Knit.1, Knit 'n Style, Knit Simple, and Crochet Today!, as well as international news-papers such as The Sunday Telegraph (in London) and CNBC.
