About the Designer:
Gabrielle has been crocheting for over 20 years. With the support of her family she started her Etsy shop in 2014. In 2022 she has set a goal to become a designer published in magazines. The goal was quickly achieved thanks to the faith that Crochet Foundry & Crochet World had in her designs. Working with others in the crochet community has been the highlight of her recent adventures. Gabby hopes to continue to learn and even inspire others to pick up a hook!
