Hello! I’m Heidi, and I’m an artist, author and crafts designer specializing in latch hook, knitting, crochet and macramé. In addition to running the Hands Occupied Blog and Pattern Shop, you can find me making videos & co-hosting the Very Serious Crafts podcast. I’m available for design collaborations and commissions, too – drop me a line at heidi [at] handsoccupied [dot] com!
About the Blog
Hands Occupied was launched as a blog in 2010 as a personal project to help motivate me to live a more creative life. Hands Occupied has grown and evolved over time from a general-interest craft website to a yarn crafts blog with tons of free patterns and tutorials, an active Pinterest account with over a million monthly views, a colorful Instagram where you can follow my works in progress and take a look behind the scenes, and a budding YouTube channel knitting, latch hook, crochet & macramé content.
