Meet the Designer

Vanessa M.

I love what I do and pass that along into my work and designs. This is a one woman show, with my wearing the many hats of running a small business. I create, design, crochet, then wrap and ship each item you see. I never use a third person source or party in my creative process and everything is truly handmade by me. 

About VSM Handcrafted Designs

Inspiration from Heritage and Heirlooms

Crochet has been a part of my life since I was a child. However, I didn’t embrace the art until my early teens. I finally learned to crochet because of my grandmother, who passed away when I was only three. Even though I never got a chance to learn from her, the creations left around my grandparents’ home inspired me to learn how to do what she did. I even have a few of her hooks that I found tucked back in her old sewing kit. It has always been a connection to her for me and it becomes even stronger as the years pass.

I am now going on over twenty years of working with the tools of the art, and enjoy creating my own patterns and designs. I am inspired daily by what I see around me. The color of a sunset, the childish glee of my boys playing pretend, a beautiful vintage cloche in the window of one of the many antique shops in my town, all become starting points for my designs. I don't really work off of predetermined patterns, unless it's one of my own, because I so enjoy the creativity of letting the yarn work with me. It's a very organic process and that is a huge enjoyment on my part. 

I have great pride in the work I create for VSM Handcrafted Designs and love being able to share my craft with others.
