Crochet Patterns and Masterclasses

Workshops & Events

Hi, I’m Sue. Welcome to The Mercerie where you can find online courses,  patterns for my designs and some rambling blog posts about art, craft and other stuff…..

My mission is to design contemporary crochet products  that retain the values of traditional craft: beautiful natural materials and good functional design.

I make products to be used and loved – and I’d like to help you do the same.
