One of our crochet tutors, Lucy Reeve, runs Dinky Designs, creating beautiful bespoke items, specialising in crochet blankets and cushion covers.
Lucy started out by making lots of crocheted and sewn items as gifts for her family and friends – they were so well received that she decided to share her creative passion with the internet world and Dinky Designs was born! She has a real passion for all things crafty and is always looking to expand her creative knowledge by trying out different stitches, and creating new patterns that are easy to follow for beginners.
The name Dinky came about when travelling in Africa. Lucy visited Ethiopia where the bones of the very first human were found. In England we call the skeleton ‘Lucy’, but the Ethiopian name is ‘Dinknesh’ which quickly became our Lucy’s nickname. Soon shortened to Dinky by her travel mates, the name stuck is a fabulous reminder of her great trip around Africa.
If you would like a bespoke blanket, perhaps for yourself to cosy up with on the sofa on a winter’s evening, or maybe as a special present for a new arrival, then please get in touch with StraightCurves using the form below and we will put you in touch with Lucy to discuss your requirements.
