About Us

Crochet Australia is an on-line business specializing in all things crochet.  We provide crochet information and a wide range of quality crochet books, hooks, threads and crochet supplies at an affordable price, not only to Australian crocheters, but to crocheters all over the world.  We also stock a range of knitting, candlewicking, tatting, macrame and hardanger books and accessories.

Crochet Australia started with just Craft Moods and Paragon publications, some threads and a few hooks in early 2002 with Vicki and Ray Moodie.  I then bought the business in 2014 when I decided that after 25 years of being an accountant, I needed a change.

I relocated the business to Yandina, in the Sunshine Coast, on the east coast of Australia in Queensland.  Just over an hours drive north of Brisbane.  I was taught to crochet by mother about the age of 5.  But it wasn’t until I became the proud owner of Crochet Australia that I really put all my crochet abilities to the test.  I became a ‘Crochet Master’ in 2017 completing the Masters in Advanced Crochet Stitches with the Crochet Guild of America.  I then completed the Crochet Teaching Certification Level 1 and Level 2 with the Yarn Council of America.  These have given me more skills and knowledge which I pass on to my customers with guidance and advice about patterns and yarns, in our weekly workshops.  I just love to teach more people the art of this craft, and see them flourish.
