Show #7 will feature a huge name in Crochet!
Kinga Erdem is Founder of one of the most massive, vibrant and supportive crochet groups on FB; My Hobby is Crochet. She is just the sweetest and humblest of women. Her blog My Hobby is Crochet boasts grand resources stock full of free patterns and tutorials; a playground for Crocheters.
After I joined her FB Group, I was determined to get Kinga Erdem on the podcast. Why? I needed to know how, and what drives a person to run a colossal group, a blog with free patterns and sensational quest bloggers, all for no salary. I was group moderator; with over 700 members in one country, a single empty nester, and that was an overtime job! Hence, I was on a mission to see how Kinga manages as a full time Mother. Moreover, allow the members to truly see the time and sacrifices made to give us creatives a safe place for growth, sharing, encouragement, and learning
Even during the interview there is a moment where you are going to hear, and get a deeper behind the scenes peak of the devoted lives of group owners and admins
Well Kinga and I were messaging back and forth about the interview; whilst, she’s on maternity leave, lives in Germany, and there’s a huge time difference between. Eventually, we agreed an Admin would be just as good to interview.
It was a great pleasure to interview Jackie Edwards, one of the many admins near my time zone. We had a hard time ending the interview; and I stifled lots of giggles, and laughter!
I introduce to the world Kinga Erdem Founder of My Hobby Is Crochet and her Admin Jackie Edwards
The Interview: Jackie (admin for 2 years) gives behind the scenes work of one of the largest Crochet Groups, she shares about:
