Hi, Jodie here.
I created Crochet Penguin to help show 1,000,000 people the benefits of crochet & highlight alternatives to fast fashion.
The inspirational crochet designs and techniques I see online are amazing. So many different crochet patterns to try and discover!
There’s more to me than loving crochet. Here’s my story.
I’m originally from Melbourne, Australia.
I attended the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, where I met my husband.
Later I graduated from La Trobe University with a Graduate Diploma in Secondary Education.
I taught Food Technology, previously known as Home Economics, in a High School for many years.
Thanks to my passion for growing organic vegetables and cooking, I got involved with the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program.
Teaching primary school kids to grow organic vegetables and preparing delicious meals was great fun.
In my spare time, I enjoy crocheting, knitting, quilting, and sewing my own clothes.
I love chatting with my readers. Please get in touch here.
Please join me and let’s get crocheting!
