ABSTRACT
An interview with fiber artisan Valentina Devine is presented. When asked about the evolution of crochet, Devine says that she see pieces of the 1970s wherein crochet was more crafty. She says she feels lucky that she was able to meet famous artists like Sylvia Cosh and James Walters from whom she learned how to use crochet stitches in knitting. Devine mentions that she does not feel comfortable teaching crochet-only classes as she does when she teaches knitting classes, but she would be delighted to teach in a class that combines both techniques.
