About the Author
In 2007, Wendi followed her heart to the USA (from South Africa) and while waiting for her Green Card, picked up her crochet hook and a new career began for her. After more than twenty years in the film and television industry, her first job in the States was working with a local crochet designer, writing and editing crochet patterns.
Her passion for crochet, prompted her to get certified as a Teacher and Instructor (through Craft Yarn Council of America), and to complete the two Masters Programs offered by the Crochet Guild of America (CGOA), of which she is a professional member.
Since those early days, she has expanded her client base and has tech-edited more than ten crochet books for an international publisher. She holds crochet classes at local yarn and craft stores, and continues to assist customers with crochet pattern queries for an online crochet business.
Her home is now in North Carolina with Bruce Ellington, her wonderfully patient and supportive husband, and a basement full of yarn and unfinished projects.
