    Yes you are an educator who teached future designers of Crochet. So you help design the designers in a way!! Congratulations!!! YOU deserve it. I know you have helped me push boundaries with things I have made.

    There is no one else that deserves it as much as you do! It’s just mind boggling how many things you have going on at any given moment. I’m right handed where my daughter is left handed and it is wonderful I don’t have to figure out how to teach her. .. You have it already covered! !
    You search for fun CAL’s that any age would enjoy, to see most people make many of is pure joy!
    You bring the other ideas and stitches from the past back to the front so that no matter what time people join they have an idea what they want to do to get started. The list is soooo long time and space don’t permit listing them all. .
    CONGRATULATIONS MIKEY!! We admire and adore YOU and D-Dan and The Others who keep it up and running. Many Thanks CHEERS! Debra Jo 🙂

    Bang on! I don’t know who that Linda was talking about because you don’t come across as greedy or arrogant or self-promoting or any of the things she mentioned. I recommend the Crochet Crowd to people all the time as a great place to learn new techniques, ask questions, get ideas, meet people, and so much more. I really really like that you try (and mostly always succeed) in keeping the trolls and naysayers to a minimum. Nothing squelches creativity and joy in completing a project like having someone tear it down or make rude comments.
    Keep I’m being you. It is my dream to join you on one of the cruises so I can meet you in person.

    Definitely out to lunch. Mike is not helpful or even friendly unless it benefits him in some way. He strokes his on ego whenever he can or surrounds himself with others who will do it for him. Takes credit for things he shouldn’t. Well this probably won’t be posted but I am just being honest.

      Thank you for your constructive feedback Linda. I appreciate your honesty in how you feel about me. Michael

        I honestly had to reread Linda’s comments over and over and it struck me, she called you Mike. It’s either Mikey, OK maybe Mickey, or Michael. Never Mike! This person couldn’t know you and call you Mike. And she could never have met you in real life. She has not seen how hard you work at the Creative Festival. If she had taken a class from you, she would see how important it is that no one get left behind. I am not talking about posts on Facebook where you have fans and everyone loves Mikey, which they do. You really care if a person is learning. It’s not about you. It’s always been about them learning craft you love and you know how beneficial it is for them as it has been for you.

      I believe everyone is entitled to their own opinion. However, I am not sure what makes you feel this way. I have been a member of the Facebook page, as well as others for quite some time. He is the only person I’ve seen to offer left and right handed tutorials on all patterns he shoots and the only one who chooses only free patterns to show. The challenges are great as well and he and Cathy always encourage creativity. Perhaps there was a misunderstanding somewhere along the way. Keep doing what you’re doing Mikey!

    CONGRATULATIONS!!!! I think you definitely deserve it Mikey!!!!

    I guess I don’t know you either, dear. I only know Dan. 😉

  • January 16, 2015 at 7:49 pm

    Well, I guess I don’t know you either. I only know Dan. 😉

      • January 17, 2015 at 1:58 pm

        It’s okay. I had to joke with you about it a bit. 🙂

    Congrats Mikey you do deserve the award. You r great.

  • January 16, 2015 at 5:14 pm

    You deserve to win all the awards in my eyes…you bring sunshine into so many lives…..you’re so modest, I don’t think you realise how many people look forward to seeing what you and Diva Dan and the rest of the Crochet Crowd are going,
    making, creating etc .. we all feel like part of a real group of friends because of you and your sense of fun and also your calm and clear tutorials

  • January 16, 2015 at 4:24 pm

    Mikey…you definitely deserve to win such an award. Your teaching skills and awesome personality are winners. I have learned a lot from you ever since I joined your crowd! Congratulations!

    I love watching your videos – They are very easy to follow and to have fun with! Keep it up!

  • January 16, 2015 at 1:48 pm

    I have only been attempting to crochet for a couple of months and find your tutorials brilliant. My ambition is to try the lovely lattice shawl but not quite yet. Shame I’ve waited ’till I’m in my 60’s to get to grips with it. Shame also your badges etc are only available in Canada and the States. BooHoo. Hope you manage to resist the lure of the coffee shop.

  • January 16, 2015 at 12:11 pm

    You make crocheting fun. Enjoy the videos. Keep up the good work.

    • January 17, 2015 at 1:55 am

      Congratulations Mikey, I totally enjoy your videos and even though I’ve been crocheting for over 40 years I still love learning new ways of crocheting (or as you call it “hooking”). I was taught by my Mom when I was about 12 but put it down until I had children then picked it up again. Mom was always there to show me new things. January 1 this year my Mom passed away (miss her). Now you’ve got to stay around Mikey. 🙂
