Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review As the author of one of the earliest kids' crochet books myself (Kids Can Do It Crocheting, 2003), I know a thing or two about how to teach children to crochet. I highly regard the book Deborah has produced. It is chock-full of everything one needs to know in order to become an enthusiastic crocheter; yet she breaks it down into progressive parts that serve to hold a child's interest without them getting discouraged. - Gwen Blakley Kinsler, founder of the Crochet Guild of America
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 1 stars (out of 5)

Author's Bio

Deborah Burger is the author of Crochet 101 and How to Make 100 Crochet Appliques. She learned to crochet from her grandmother at age 12. While she has found enjoyment in many fiber, textile and other art forms, crochet remains her lifelong favorite. She has been teaching crochet for more than 20 years, through Girl Scouting, various community centers, summer camps, at Charlotte's Fibers (a yarn shop in Western North Carolina), and the John C. Campbell Folk School. She is active in the online community, Ravelry, and has written articles and patterns for Interweave Crochet and the e-zines, Crochet Insider and Crochet Uncut. Deb and her musician/potter husband, Don, are the parents of seven grown children and have several grandchildren, most of whom also crochet. In addition to crochet, Deb enjoys knitting, embroidery, painting, fiber sculpture, gardening, performing folk music, and reading.
