Happy Vonday! Today’s post features Black crochet designers, of which I am self-published, and includes knit designers, because some do both! 🙂
Whether you’ve been doing it for years, self-published, or just dropped your first pattern, holla at me!
This list will more than likely be a work in progress. If I’ve missed anyone..slide into my DMs at @vcbcrochet and lemme know!

Hey, y’all; it’s Von…and Happy Vonday!
Today’s post is featuring Black indie yarn dyers. I’ve done a feature before on my blog, but this time I’m just gonna drop websites, handles and linkies. If I miss anyone, slide into my IG DMs (@vcbcrochet) and lemme know, so I can add them!

Hey y’all…it’s Von!
I have a new goal to post every Monday, so I’m calling it Vonday! 🙂 I’m cheeky like that 😉
Today, I’m doing a fast-and-dirty link drive-by featuring and focusing on the community of crochet doll makers of African descent.
Over the past year or so, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and finding out about several; be sure to check them out as well.

So…now that I’m upgrading my website, I’m looking to do something old and something new. My goal is to make this space more robust, with some of the things I used to do…like a charity of the month, lots of informational and resourceful links, in addition to hosting more Make-Alongs, a membership community, and adding a shop for my patterns and finished items, as well as some classes, tutorials and videos, based on my limited recording skills. Sounds quite ambitious, yes?
