We're still collecting donations

On the 25th May 2020 we'd raised £1,000 with 16 supporters in 27 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

My bigger plans are to create a line of yarns and accessories that are easily affordable for anyone. 

Hey, I'm Fran. I started my crochet journey 5 years ago whilst pregnant with my son, making blankets and hats. Since then, I have moved onto more challenging adventures, from Amigurumi to personalised client orders. However, at the start of 2020, I decided that it was time to get more creative! So I'm pushing my boundaries by designing and writing patterns of my own and starting a blog! I am currently writing content with tips and tricks but I also want to be able to publish more free and premium crochet patterns and market them correctly in order to gain more exposure. This is where I am struggling with my business so the help of a professional marketer, along with a suitable camera and equipment for photographs and videos of my products would benefit massively. Check out my blog at! Below are a few projects I have been working on. 

We ask project owners to honour their rewards wherever possible but please note that all pledges are donations and there is no guarantee that you will receive any rewards from the project owner. Please see Crowdfunder's Terms of Use for more information regarding rewards for pledges.
