Crystal from Marching North

Meet the creator of Marching North

Hi, I’m Crystal!

Welcome to my crafty corner of the internet!

I’m a mom, wife, introvert, collector of ten thousand hobbies, graphic designer, and entrepreneur. 

You’ll most likely find me tangled up in macrame cord, obsessively trimming the fringe of a wall hanging because I’m determined to get the left side to look like the right, with tiny pieces of colorful yarn fluff covering my shirt, pants, and let’s be real, my hair, which I have tied up in a bun with my crochet hook.

Years of hyper focusing on my latest crafty whim has accumulated a lot of information in the old noggin, and I want to share it all with you! 

When you’re first trying to learn how to make something, it’s really frustrating if the instructions you find aren’t simple and easy to understand. 

I found that out as a teen, sitting cross legged on the floor, squinting at a tiny, wall-of-text “Crochet for Beginners” instructional pamphlet that I found in the yarn section of Walmart. Like, don’t you think a picture or two would be helpful? Perhaps a drawing, even?

So, to help you not struggle with it, I created this website and 2 YouTube channels with all kinds of easy to follow patterns and tutorials. With photos AND videos. (See, pamphlet?? This is how it’s done.)

If you’re a visual learner and you like things to be explained in a crystal clear, easy to follow manner, you’re in the right place.

Or, if you’re more of a fan of printable patterns you can keep on hand for easy access, check out my shop!

I know how hard it can be to even find time for a bathroom break, let alone finding time to make something fun, and I want to make it as quick and easy as possible for you to find everything you need for your creative endeavors. 

Thank you so much for stopping by.  Make yourself at home!
