Laura Eccleston Crochet Designer

About The Designer

Laura Eccleston

HappyBerry began its journey in the Autumn of 2009, just before my daughter came into the world. I had quit working in an office and decided it was time to re-focus my busy life and re-discover my passion for yarn and traditional crafts. With a desire to make my little girl clothes and toys to play with, I decided to fully immerse myself into crochet.

HappyBerry has gone on to have patterns published in crochet magazines such as Inside Crochet magazine and Mollie Makes. I’ve also designed for DMC Creative and online yarn retailer Deramores, but my true desire will always be sharing my designs for free with whoever wishes to read or watch them.

I have been in awe of the scale of my audience with a reach of over 500,000 people and growing. Thank you everyone for your continuing support, I love you guys! (^-^)
