It is that time of the year again, when you are eagerly trying to find that ‘perfect gift’ for Christmas. But, Jenny King, the Sunshine Coast’s very own crochet queen believes the art of crochet could be that perfect gift.
With her new store located in Marcoola, the self-confessed crochet addict hopes that her passion for crochet can be learnt and enjoy by many this Christmas.
“With Christmas approaching crochet kits make great gifts. Giving someone the ability to create something with their own two hands is so special and unique,” Jenny King said .
The new store, Jenny King Designs, at Shop 1, 932 David Low Way, Marcoola makes it easy to choose your gift and Jenny can also offer impromptu crochet lessons for beginners when making a purchase. With her range of designs from crochet dolls, intricate beaded bags, jewellery, to your favourite football team footy, rugs there is a gift suited to everyone’s tastes.
Jenny’s passion for crocheting has been alive since she was just 10-years-old when she was first taught the simple two stiches. She has passed on her love of crochet since the 1990s and has been an author of 13 crochet books and countless patterns and designs. She has taught crochet around Australia and internationally.
“Crochet is so simple and quick, everyone can do it no matter what skill level. We have some exciting new plans for 2011 but in the meantime making someone a gift you have created will show that person you love just how much you care for them and it will be a gift that can be treasured,” Jenny said.
This Christmas do something different and be creative. Create someone you love a gift from the heart, a gift that will prove to them just how much they mean to you. Getting a gift knowing that someone has put time and effort into it is much more valuable than an expensive item purchase from a chain store.
If you think it is too hard to create that special gift on you own Jenny King operates her personalised crochet classes at her store location.
“Nothing is impossible if you set your mind to it. Crochet is not difficult and you will be able to create that perfect gift before you know it” said Jenny.
“I wanted to share my passion with other people so that everyone can see how easy it is and so the skills we learnt from our ancestors are not lost with the passage of time.”
Crochet has been around for centuries, providing enjoyment and pleasure to many. Jenny’s passion for crochet is undeniable and through her ability to create the most beautiful and creative gifts there is bound to be that perfect gift for someone you love this Christmas.
