Hello, friends! My name is Gretchen and I am the maker behind PGM Crafts.

Thank you for joining me on my crafting journey. I’m so excited you’re here!

My crafting journey mostly focuses on crochet. I test patterns for crochet designers and have dabbled in design myself. I am a self-taught crocheter, however, my mom tried to teach me when I was a kid, but I just couldn’t grasp it at the time. I started crocheting in 2014 and haven’t stopped since I picked up my first hook.

Challenging myself with new techniques is something I love and I can’t wait to share with you what I have learned. Becoming a resource for your crafting journey is a dream of mine, but my ultimate goal is to provide you with designs that are useful and bestsellers.

About My Family and My 9-to-5…

My husband and I have two children – a son (age 9) and a daughter (age 8). We also have a tabby-ragamuffin mix 1-year-old cat named Luna (for those that are Harry Potter fans – yes, she’s named after Luna Lovegood!).

I work full-time for a healthcare organization as a health data auditor while also running PGM Crafts as my side-hustle. On top of all of that, I am also a full-time student currently working on a bachelors degree double majoring in data analytics. Ultimately, I am working towards a masters in health analytics.
