BIPOC Crochet Designers - a list with clickable links

Fay Dashper-Hughes BIPOC Crochet designers; crochet designers POC designers

During the beginning of 2019, many lists were pulled together to highlight the fabulous Black, Indigenous or People of Colour (BIPOC) knitwear and crochet designers.

However, as is often the case, the crochet designs and designers get swamped by the sheer volume of knitting.

Claudia from the Crochet Luna Vlogcast has taken on the huge task of filtering out all of the crochet designers, and asking for their permission to appear on both her Instagram stories highlight called "BIPOC Crochet Designers" and in this blog post.  

EDIT 1st November 2019 - under the banner of 'BIPOC in Fiber' a group of amazing people set up a crowdfunding project to create a website/project to "become a vital, interactive resource that will increase the profiles of all the BIPOC makers listed and show the true diversity that exists in our community."

If you would also like to support the project, you can do so by clicking here

 

Here is how the list works:

Each new designer is added to the top of the list and a date will be given so that you can keep up to date with who you have and haven't followed.

Each link shown is clickable so that you can go straight to the crochet designer's Ravelry page, website etc. and it should open as a new window.

If the designer also offers other craft-related services, such as tech editing or a podcast, then that has been added too.

If you are a BIPOC designer and want to be added to the list - great!  In the first instance, please get in touch with Claudia via Instagram so that she can add you to her highlights list.  If you feel like freeing up some of our time so that we can do more crochet, please make sure we know what your Revelry Designer name is, and pass links to the places where you sell/blog/podcast from.  I will be able to add your details to this list.
