Audiobooks, music, podcasts… if you listen to it while you work, it will sound even better coming through this speaker lamp. And, recently, we've been using this speaker in our classes when we travel and teach.

This is the book we've wanted to create since we started designing. We packed Designer Crochet with everything I wish I had when I was starting to make crochet garments way back in antiquity. Plus it has 32 patterns sized Small through 5X… 32 patterns!! With charts, tutorials, illustrations, and the FAB photography of Jason Mullett-Bowlsby, Designer Crochet is our DREAM project!

We love the community we have become a part of over the past five years and we can't think of better people to work with to get the word out.

Looking forward to a FAB 2015 (and beyond!) working with you all!
Take an industry-savvy professional with a reputation for being delightfully impish, put her in the wilds of Maine with a desire to create something new and important in the fiber industry, and you might just get something really FAB like the new Mainly Crochet by Michele Maks.
Come along and listen in while we chat with Michele and discover just exactly what this creation of hers is all about.
You might recognize this design from the first life it lived in a UK magazine back in 2011. Since then, the publishing rights to the pattern have reverted to us, we've made some spiffy patterning changes, added a chart, sized the pattern for Small–5X, and now we're re-releasing this beauty into the wilds of the internet for you all to download and enjoy for yourselves!
The Filigree Leaf Tunic has been a favorite of ours for years. The easy fit and versatility of this tunic makes it a FAB piece for any body type and just about any occasion.
We've made versions of this design for clients who wore them as wedding dresses, holiday party cocktail dresses, and even beach cover-ups. However, the most popular use for this light and lacy piece is just as a comfortable top to throw over jeans and a tee or tank. Add a belt for a little flattering shaping and you're all set!
Worked from the top down, you can customize the length to meet your wardrobe desires. After making the two panels, you simply sew up the sides and top seams. Easy peasy!
Check out the gallery below then CLICK HERE to head on over to our shopping site and purchase your own digital copy today! Light and breezy for warmer temps or layered to keep off the chill… you'll look stunning and have TONS of bragging rights when you wear this piece and tell folks: Yup… I made this!
This week, the folks at Annie’s have donated a one-year subscription to Crochet! Magazine for our giveaway… WOOHOO!! If you’ve been following along with Shibaguyz Designz, you know Crochet! Magazine was the first US magazine to publish one of our designs. Since that first issue in November 2010, we have been thrilled to have 27 designs published in Crochet! Magazine and we have been honored with four cover features.
We’re going to make this one simple with the help of our friends at Rafflecopter.
