Introduction to Amigurumi: Easter Chicken egg cosy with Fiona Meade
Born and raised in Ireland, Fiona has been crocheting for most of her life. She gained her love of all things crafty from her multi-talented mother and her grandmother, who owned her own craft shop. After learning the basics, she taught herself to read patterns and hasn't looked back! She loves working with new yarns and trying out new crochet techniques. When not crocheting or looking after her young daughter, Fiona is a geologist, and has spent the last 15 years studying the volcanoes of Ireland, Scotland and beyond! She enjoys teaching as much as she enjoys crocheting itself, and has set up Fiona Meade Crochet to turn her hobby into a small business. You can also find Fiona as FionaMeadeCrochet on Facebook.
