Crochet has been Rachele’s passion since 2005, when there was a major resurgence in yarn crafts. Self-taught with the help of library books, slow-loading internet and a group of like-minded college friends, she was soon crocheting daily, and continues to do so back home in Texas. She says that crochet is the creative outlet that balances her busy, structured life as a wife, and mom to four young children and various fur babies.

Rachele became fixated on blankets early in her crochet journey and has made over 300 to date! As her own designs evolved, she has taken inspiration from outside the crochet community in art forms such as weaving, digital art, screen-printing and quilting. Her signature style combines geometrics and mixed motifs as seen in much-loved designs for Scheepjes publications, such as the Surf and Turf Blanket and Time Travellers Blanket featured in recent YARN Bookazines.
