I was thrilled when A.C. Moore opened Store #062 here in South Philadelphia. They asked me to come up with some patterns for their new season theme of  School Spirit Scarves and School Spirit Knots.

A couple of years ago I started making models for the store to display. I also did some demonstrating of new products, new techniques and of course — crochet.

If you're not familiar with A.C. Moore, it's mostly on the East Coast but spreading rapidly. Before they moved in to Pier 70 here, there was a dearth of craft stores in my neck of the woods: in other words, NONE!

What started out as one A.C. Moore store in 1985 has now grown to 96. And there's another just opening in Chattanooga, Tenn.
