Today on the Yarnthing Podcast with Marly Bird: the talented crochet designer, Margaret Hubert!
Listen in below to hear Marly and Margaret talk about how Margaret got started, her journey through the yarn world, publishing, and social media.
Margaret Hubert is another bicraftual woman and encourages everyone to be as well. She learned to knit from her mother, but learned to crochet out of necessity. A sweater she made hadn’t worked out quite as it should have and the shop owner who she went to for help said we can just fix it with crochet. She learned for that sweater and hasn’t looked back since. Margaret Hubert has been in the yarn industry is some way or another since the 70’s. She and friend owned a yarn shop for a while when Margaret’s kids were little. After the yarn shop, she worked for Bloomingdales and then started publishing books. Her first books included One-Piece Knits that Fit: How to Knit and Crochet One-Piece Garments that Fit, Weekend Knitting Projects, and Weekend Crochet Projects. She had a bit of break in publishing and started back up again in 2006 with her Hooked series. Her most recent books include one that was rejected 10 years ago (persistence pays!), The Granny Square Book: Timeless Techniques and Fresh Ideas for Crocheting Square by Square. You can see all her most recent work with Quayside here. Check it out, there is something for everyone!
