Crochet can be a hobby, it can be a passion, it can be a job and it can be a charity. Using our skills to give back to others is such a blessing. Rohn has been a crochet designer and teacher for a while, but he has been a crafter since he was a child. His newest adventure is a partnership with Debbie Macomber and World Vision for a great new program.
