If you're from the Philippines, a crochet enthusiast and active on social media, chances are you've heard of the Facebook group Gantsilyo Adik. This group was a brainchild of Anabelle Andes Tracy of I'm Hooked, a Filipina crochet aficionado based in Mexico.
I can't stress enough how much I love being a member of this group. The members are so warm, relaxed and everything we share in this group is crochet related. No hang ups allowed. We are all sisters here.. and brothers. Yes, we have guy members. :)
On April 11, our group had a meet and greet in Taguig City. It was organized by Lerma Sijera of Krinochet ni Emang. It was supposed to be at Starbucks, Market Market but so many member showed up that we had to move to the food court of the mall.
Here are some random shots.
We had so much fun sharing patterns, tips and tricks and whatnot about crochet. Ate Lerma and some other members raffled off some prizes like yarns, hooks and knitting needles.
And we got to meet the Gantsilyo Guru herself, Trey Ajusto. We were starstruck. She's more awesome in person. :)
And here is the Gantsilyo Adik members' group hug.
Purple is one of my favorite colors. Guess what! I won purple yarns and knitting needles, Hurray! Thank you to Ate Lerma and Persia of Craft Kitten Paws.
