Michele Maks

Michele Maks has been a professional in the knit and crochet industry since 1985. Designing knit and crochet wear for 23 years led to becoming the editor of Crochet World, the largest crochet magazine in the world. An MS diagnosis made leaving the corporate world necessary and returning to Maine has been a lesson in healing. Not willing to leave the crochet world for good, she is now the publisher and editor, and yes, sometimes designer for www.mainlycrochet.com. Knowing that crochet is an empowering experience for many, she enjoys teaching the craft, and encouraging a gentle learning of new techniques.
