We have so many new crochet friends lately that we thought it might be a good idea to re-introduce ourselves and answer some commonly asked questions.
If you are new and curious about the exact story of how the crochet part of Daisy Farm started you can read this blog post here that will share how our crochet journey began.
We love sharing our crochet with you all and can’t believe that we are in our fifth year! We first and foremost want to send our love to you all. It’s been so much fun to have you along.
So in case you don’t know, we are a mom and daughter team! I’m Tiffany, the mom and my oldest daughter Hannah are the designers and bloggers behind Daisy Farm Crafts.
I’m going to outline some commonly asked questions that hopefully will help you to get to know our website a little bit better.
How can I find your patterns?
All of our patterns are free on our website daisyfarmcrafts.com. Look to the menu headings for the different categories. We’ve expanded the blanket section to include more types and to narrow the search.
Most newer patterns we are offering a free printable version at the end of each post. However, some of our older patterns are available as ad-free pdf’s on Etsy.
Or, our most popular baby blanket patterns, which all include the pattern repeat to make the blankets larger, are available in book from Amazon. It’s called 25 Crochet Baby Blanket Patterns.
We also just this year came out with a book called “Our Favorite Crochet Stitches” where we share in detail some of the most basic crochet stitches that we love to use in our blankets. We explain them in a way that hopeful even the most beginner can understand.
This book is also available as a Kindle version which has links to take you straight to a video tutorial.
What does it mean that you are a Stitch Ambassador for Yarnspirations?
We are so thankful for the wonderful team at Yarnspirations for sponsoring us with their amazing yarn all year long. We are paid to work with their product specifically. We use Bernat, Caron, Paton’s and Sugar Bush yarn all found on their website. We feel so honored that they found us as we have been using their products for years.
What is the best way to ask questions?
In a typical day, we will receive anywhere from 50 to 100 emails asking for help deciding what alternative colors you could use for projects or other crochet questions. While in the past, we were able to respond to those emails, we really can’t anymore. At last count, we have close to 2 million crochet friends across all our social media platforms.
We try to do our best to answer questions on our social media platforms so more people can see the answers.
But if you need more help, we have created a group on Facebook called Daisy Farm Crafters Group. You may post specific questions about Daisy Farm patterns and get help from others who may have already made the pattern. It’s really a great place. We limit the posts to only questions about Daisy Farm patterns so hopefully, it’s an easier place to find answers. Please only ask questions in this group about Daisy Farm projects and share your pictures. It’s very inspiring.
Why do I only receive emails from you when you publish a new pattern?
When you sign up for the newsletter, essentially you will receive an email announcing the new patterns or sometimes blog posts like this. We generally post 2 to 3 times a week. If you’ve signed up and aren’t seeing them, check your spam folder, they could be getting caught in there. We try and keep the emails short and sweet. It’s a way to stay up to date with what we are making in case you aren’t on Instagram or Facebook.
Can I sell my work made from your patterns?
Absolutely yes! We love that. All we ask is that you use your own pictures of the item to advertise and to mention that it is a Daisy Farm Crafts pattern. We’d love to help you sell the items when we can and we’d like you to use #daisyfarmcrafts on your post on Instagram. By doing that we can point people to that # to find your work and we can also share a post up into our stories. (No guarantee that we will share it, but mostly if we see it, we do share.) We love Etsy sellers and would love to help in any way when possible.
I’m a crochet blogger too, can I use your pictures in a round-up type post?
Yes! We ask that you please link back to us and also email us so we can be sure and pin the post to our Pinterest boards when possible and help you share.
What do you use to take your pictures?
We mainly take photos with our Iphone and place our projects on white foam core poster boards. We use the editing app called Snapseed and brighten the photos to try and capture the exact colors of the project the best we can. Oh, and natural light. Place your project by a window.
How can I learn about becoming a crochet blogger?
I’ve written about our experience blogging about crochet and more of the business side of what it takes to start a website and all that goes along with it. There’s a lot of information about web hosts and more details if you find that interesting. See this post here called Tips for Becoming a Crochet Blogger.
I hope that gives you a glimpse into our website and who we are. We do not claim to be professional crocheters at all. We just love the craft and love to design our own blankets. We write our patterns in a way that future grandchildren might be able to read them and understand them. We try not to use too many symbols and code. If anything, we are as wordy as we possibly can be!
Thank you, everyone, for following us along on our journey!
xoxo, Tiffany and Hannah
