I met Catherine totally by chance via Craig's List, the US equivalent of the UK's Gumtree. Close to two years ago I was randomly looking at Craig's List. I've never advertised or bought anything there and have only visited the site a handful of times since moving to Texas. But for some serendipitous reason I searched for "crochet" and found Catherine seeking a partner to start a crochet business. Of course, I had to call!
We met at a Starbucks half way between our homes and became firm friends. How could we not with our shared love of all things crochet?! I didn't become Catherine's partner because after deep reflection I felt that I couldn't devote the time to building a second business from scratch as I had with TG Research, my primary business but we stayed in touch. I helped Catherine out when I could mainly with encouragement and brainstorming ideas!
It's absolutely fantastic to see her magazine launched. Catherine has some great content in there. I wrote an article too: The Amazing Health Benefits of Crochet. It's available in digital or print format or both! I'd highly encourage you to buy yourself a copy! Here is the link on Magcloud: http://www.magcloud.com/browse/issue/1071707?__r=607820
