    Thanks for sharing the letter. Amazing the group we have. The negatives from others do not diminish the light that shines from our page. Just do what is right and keep hooking!

    I knew Diane was this type of person when I heard her speak of the charities she was lovingly involved with….a giver…..not a taker. An encourager…..to all. Praise our Lord for ones like her.
    I too enjoyed meeting you Diane….if was refreshing! So looking forward to February 2015!

    Mikey,
    Diane says so well what we all feel. You create an environment that draws people into a very sharing community. And you encourage giving in so many ways. You should print Diane’s letter, frame it and hang in front of your computer so when you are discouraged, you have a reminder of how important you are to all of us. Thank- you Mikey, Daniel, Cathy, Colleen, Diane and all other Crochet Crowders!

    Miss Diane,
    What a loving and touching letter. You are truly blessed for being a giver and reaching out to help others in need. Its wonderful looking outside the box for learning new things so that you may go on giving. May God continue to bless you with the love you have for crocheting for others. You are an inspiration.

    Sincerely, Mary

    =) This is a wonderful letter, Diane. I am glad that you actually put into words the incredible impact Mikey and The Crochet Crowd has had on you. Sometimes we forget that people we admire who teach us need to hear it too…I don’t get to crochet as much as I would like to at all–but I’ve sent friends here to learn because I know how much Mikey and everyone in the Crowd cares…=)

    It never fails to surprise me how, on the worst, most frustrating days, people come into my life who make me smile and give me hope. Many, many times this web group is the source of those smiles. Thank you ALL for sharing. Mike, thank you for sharing the fun and frustration but most of all, THANK YOU for hanging in and helping us all find a way to share with and support others.

    I love being a part of the Crochet Crowd. It’s always a pleasure to read posts and emails and know that we are all connected to thousands of other crocheters around the world. You guys should be really proud of what you’ve achieved and how much you mean to all of us. Great job Mikey and all the crew, love ya all…..

    The true meaning of pay it forward. Mikey shares his knowledge and Diane passes it forward to others at her group plus her acts of kindness with the donated items. May the pair of you continue in what you do xx

    Diane Suder , I understand how you feel about giving away your crocheted items. I too, give away most of what I crochet. We call it paying forward , and for us it’s fun

      Thank you. I hope we will be able to connect easily on the cruise. The attendance is doubled from last year. I look at the pictures and don’t recognize several of the cruisers. Its going to be such great fun.
