Hello and Welcome!
Crochet Pattern Central (otherwise known as CPC) debuted after my sister and I got a little tired of wasting time while searching for crochet patterns. She needed HTML, PHP, and MYSQL practice. I enjoyed (and still do) hunting down new free pattern links and corresponding with people writing in. After several months of combined effort, CPC arrived on the scene in late 2003.
When crocheting, I tend to work only with thread (#10 bedspread weight cotton). Thread lends a delicate and dainty touch to my favorite items to crochet--home decor, clothing and accessories, doilies, and more.
Getting back to CPC... Many people, when emailing me, refer to my "office staff" (as a matter of course). No, it's just me, either at my desk at work during lunch hour or at home in the evenings and on weekends--finding links, organizing links, running link checks, changing links, implementing changes, and replying to emails.
