Friendship Room, Finding a Pen-Pal

Looking for a e-mail buddy? ..... Need a crafting friend?

Friends are quiet angels who lift us to our feet when our wings have trouble remembering how to fly!

Remember when a Pen Pal was regarded as a very dear friend? Remember getting to know your pen-pal as if you were family? Well it can happen agIain here.

To write to someone listed below simply click on their "e-mail " link and introduce yourself.

Or to find an e-mail buddy write your note to knit@knitting-crochet.com with pen-pal in the subject line.

Here is a little something that came my way and thought you would like it too. Thank you takesian@erols.com


If nobody smiled and nobody cared and nobody helped us along, If every moment looked after itself and good things always went to the strong; If nobody cared just a little about you and nobody cared about me, and we stood alone, in the battle of life, What a dreary old world this would be. Life is sweet, just because of friends we have made and the things which in common we share. We want to live on, not because of ourselves, but because of the people who care. It is doing and giving for somebody else on which all of life's splendor depends. The joy of this world, when you've summed it all up, is found in the making of friends.

Hi – I’d LOVE to have some yarn-loving email pals.  I’m Mary Beth, 52 years old (53 this summer), mother to four grown children and two grown stepchildren and foster mother to countless over the years.

I learned to crochet when I was 14 or 15 years old and I’ve enjoyed it ever since.  There was a time when my children were all little that I was really passionate about it.  Of course, I didn’t have a full time job and the internet back then and was pretty much tied to the house.  It definitely makes a difference.

My husband plays bluegrass music, and so I like that community. I also like to read  my Bible.  Gardening, canning and preserving, sewing, almost any craft.  I just signed up for a “learn to paint something of the month club” although I’m a little too scared to try.  My father in law was a professional artist while he was living, and my husband himself is quite talented.  I’m waiting till he is away at one of his bluegrass events before I even try my hand at it.  He’ll be wanting to “help”, I just know.  LOL!

I’m a big lover of dogs and cats.  We have two dogs and one cat who all get along well, I’m thinking of adding another cat for balance.   We live in a great big 180 year old farmhouse that had a city built up around it.  My husband has been renovating it for the past 8 years.  What a big job that is!

I’d love to hear from any yarn lovers – age doesn’t matter.  It’s nice when people have things in common, but it’s nice to learn about new things as well.

HI,  I'm interested in having a crochet pen pal. Crocheting is one of my favorite hobbies along with reading and photography.

At this present time I am working on five afghans.  Just about finished with one; hopefully tonight.  Then only four more to go. Three of  the afghans I'm making our circular.  They  take a little more time to do, but are also fun and the end results are nice - according to the recipients. As I crochet, I pray for the persons for whom I am making the afghans.   It is fun to choose the colors as well as the patterns.

If anyone would like to be a pen pal, I'd really like to hear from you.  Promise I'll respond. What do you like to crochet? How long have you been crocheting? I've been crocheting about 30 years. 

I am a cancer survivor. Have been in remission almost 5 years. God is good.

Back to my afghan..........

Thank you to all who respond to this.

My name is Raquel and I just found this site.  I am a 26 year old mom of twin girls who loves to crochet. I would love to have a penpal, I would prefer crocheters, but other crafts are good as well because you never know what 2 different crafters can come up with.

I would prefer to have someone/some people that don't mind a delay in my letters sometimes because I have 2 VERY ACTIVE 4 year olds that hate it when I don't pay them attention most of the time, lol. 

I don't have a preference in age or gender as long as you write to me I would love to be your penpal.  All that I ask is that you put "penpal" in the subject line so I won't think you are spam. 

Thank you very much and hope to chat with you very soon.



---------------September 21 '09-------------

I am just wondering if I can have someone to share my craft ideas with or to get other patterns and maybe help with knowing how to do patterns.  I am new at doing baby clothes and I really need help reading those patterns but I learn really fast.  I have MSN and facebook too.  I hope that the person that you send my way doesn't mind missing a letter some times.  I have 3 boys and a baby on the way.. ..since it is July, the summer has arrived.  I usually am on MSN in the evenings......ater the kids are in bed.....LOL! Thanks for you time and hope to talk to you all later. ..I also want to thank you for this site.  It has helped me a little with some patterns but I like to see things done too.......if at some point you can come up with videos of some of the stitching and pattern designs.  That is an idea for the site that you might consider for the visual learners.

Hi. My name is Lynn and I'm 58 years old, married and love all sorts of crafts - knitting being my favorite.  I'm recently retired - live in Ontario, Canada so I now have lots of time for knitting.

I've recently become a grandmother for the 1st time and really love to knit for babies especially, but I'll try anything.

Hi! My name is Paula, I teach Kindergarten and I live in Oregon. Recently (1/26/09) my son was killed in Kurkuit, Iraq and I would like a pen pal who loves to crochet and craft as well as reminisce about their fallen angel. Because we have lost a child to the war we are called Gold Star moms (and families). Crocheting is a good outlet for me when I am not teaching in the classroom. I also teach in the after school program at my school. Classes I have taught are:  embroidery, crochet, basics of knitting, origami, Iris folding, Tea Bag folding and Quilling, if you would like some web sites I am a great resource person too.





Hello, I would like to get to know another crocheter that likes to crochenit and cro-hook. I am a Grandmother of seven Grandchildren. I am 59 years old and have been married to a wonderful man for 40 years. Well that is about all for now, I hope to meet someone soon.

Thank You,    Sanicka slizski@q.com

My life is kept busy chasing my kids from one event to another. I enjoy photography and all sorts of crafts. I like to sing. Although I do not find a lot of time to squeeze these things in.
