When I joined the etsyhookers street team about 6 months ago I met a wonderfully, nice lady Nora and here is my feature on her Etsy shop: Noradora
Nora likes to say she is a crocheter by nature because she is a mother of 2 and grandmother of 2. Growing up in Ohio and relocating to North Carolina in the 70's, Nora started crocheting in high school and as she raised her children it became a relaxation tool. She started by crocheting dollies, cloth edgings and afghans. Once her children started school, Nora put down her hook but inspired by her granddaughter to pick that hook up once more. Nora started crocheting doll clothes for her granddaughter, which has now become a passion of hers. She crochets cloths for all size dolls, trolls and lately has been obsessed with the Blythe doll.
A ball or skein of yarn is the simple inspiration that Nora needs to just start crocheting. Nora does not use a pattern but the simple passion of the yarn and hook. She starts to crochet and never knows where it will lead her but in the end she creates amazing things.
Etsy is an important venue for Nora. Etsy is more than just the selling, but her memberships with the Etsyhookers, WWWG team and EtsyFast team and consistent contributions to the etsy forums that helps Nora promote her shop. Renewing and listing in her shop daily helps to expand her exposure. Beyond Etsy, Nora sells her creations on Ebay and at an occasional local craft market.
All of Nora's creations are wonderful and it is hard for her to choose just one. The adult and doll Snoods are very popular and given the challenge Nora will try to create anything with her hook and yarn. Be sure to check out all of Nora's wonderful crocheted creations in her Etsy shop: Noradora or her blog: Noradora blog
