About me

Location Strombeek-Bever, Brussels, Belgium
Introduction Welcome. My name is Viviane, living near Brussels Belgium. I love all kind of textiles, from designing, creating, trying out old and new methods, as well in patchwork quilting crochet crotat (frivolité au crochet) knitwear lace-knitting afghan/tunisian-crochet etc. I’m an author of French books. 2009 cro-tat: old and fascinating technique of lacemaking with hook with100 very modern objects. 2011 about lace knitting for beginners with 22 shawls and stoles 2012 a small book for socks & fingerless mitts on knittingloom (many different stitches) 2015 lace-knitting with 14 shawls-stoles each with matching bonnet-beret or gloveless mitts. 2016 planning Locker-hooking ... The personal stuff: young grandma of a little boy. Originally we spoke French at home, went to a Flemish school, then moved back to Brussels and ... now it doesn't matter which language is spoken, I adapt. It's all a cheerful mix, just like life in Belgium. So very welcome and hope you'll enjoy your time spent reading my scribbles... but please notice that my original work and design is copyrighted. So ask and link as much as you desire!
