Red Heart Yarns

The Crochet Crowd once again can play with Red Heart yarn branded products through tutorial creation and pattern making. We are loyal to the Yarnspirations label with all of the brands that fell under the Bernat, Caron, Lily Sugar’n Cream and Patons products.

Spinrite Yarns, aka, Yarnspirations acquired Coats & Clark which included Red Heart Yarns, Anchor and Coats & Clark Threads & Zippers.

The Crochet Crowd will be focused on the Red Heart brand labels as this level of yarn is our forte. We are a value-focused company due to my own situation of being on a budget and cycling through a lot of yarn. For my lifetime of crochet, I have used both Bernat and Red Heart as my goto brands. I trust these brands and I have grown up with them.

We are making a few changes based on our experience in teaching with existing patterns from Red Heart:

  • I was not given clearance to mention the designer’s names until the final 2 months of our contract with Red Heart back in 2014. This was an oversight that should never have happened in retrospect.
  • I have been adamant and it was already in the works with Yarnspirations to ensure the designer’s names were kept in the patterns. We will know who the designers are.
  • Any videos we film, the designers will be credited for the design. Also, the designers of these patterns will be called out in the write up of a blog.
  • To go a step further, designer names will also be linked to their social or website properties. If a designer would prefer traffic go to a specific site, they can reach me through our email system of [email protected]
  • Designers will also have their own collection of patterns grow within our website the more our team blogs about designs. As we run into new designers, the designer will be given their own category so you can cross-link other articles we have shared that relate to that same designer.

Mikey, aka Michael Sellick, of The Crochet Crowd, started this online journey back in 2008. A mere hobby in trying to reach out to others as he was mentally struggling with his own issues. His goal was simple, find others in the yarn communities, like him, that have a common interest.

The journey and main baby of the whole idea started with a YouTube Channel and then in 2011, an official website was developed. Michael is not only the face of The Crochet Crowd but also the working engine behind the crowd in self-taught programming, social media and so much more.

Enjoy the stitching journey. Life is short, enjoy this wonderful hobby and all of the learning opportunities that come with it.

    I am just wondering what the relationship is between Crochet Crowd and Yarnspirations. I don’t see it explained anywhere on the Crochet Crowd website. I am asking out of curiosity, not for any other reasons. I love Mikey’s tutorials and CALS.
    Thank you
