Everywhere, No where
I started the CLF as a joke on Ravelry, back in July of 2007. The joke was on me, we're a real group, that seeks to liberate ourselves from stereo types about our craft and ourselves. Other than being called "Fearless Leader", I'm a designer, mother, editor, wife, hand spinner, yarn addict, incessant reader, and over all geek in the coolest of geeky ways.

Beware Defamers of the Hook!

Beware Defamers of the Hook!
Like Joan of Arc, and the Scarlet Pimpernel we are here to seek Justice!

Crochet Liberation Front Manifesto

CLF manifesto

We are the Crochet Liberation Front!
We are both male and female, all races, creeds, and nationalities.

We hook and we are proud.

With our hooks we make lace, household items, dresses and sweaters, socks and slippers, tablecloths and bedspreds, we make jewelry and sculptured art.

We are limited only by our creativity and imagination.

That which we make is beautiful!

We refuse to be pigeon-holed into any single category.

We refuse to accept the myth that we are less than other arts and crafts.

We will not apologize for our love of all that is hookable.

We refuse to continue in the need to have other crafts to make us valid.

We are valid in and of our own nature.

We refuse to accept the stereotypes that keep us down trodden and unsupported.

We are the Crochet Liberation Front and WE hold our hooks high!

If you are a person who uses the great hook to create wonderful art, cozy clothes, practical household items, fun and entertaining toys and dolls, if you just like the feel of the hook in your hand, if you have a mother, daughter, aunt, grandmother, father, grandfather, uncle or son who crochets...join us!

How? Just give us your

Name (you can make one up)

Rank (Please make one up, it's fun!)

and Yardage (some people take this to mean how much they have made, how much in their stash, how long they have crocheted).

Just post a comment below and you are officially part of the CLF...
