Welcome to Underground Crafter!
My name is Marie Segares, and I’m the Proprietress of the Underground Crafter. I’m a crochet and knitting blogger, designer, and teacher. I learned to crochet from my maternal grandmother in 1984, and I’ve been hooked ever since. I conquered my fear of knitting in 2010, and now I’m happily bi-craftual.
I won the Crochet Concupiscence 2014 Awesome Blog Award for Best Crochet Blog Series for my Hispanic Heritage Month interview series, where I interviewed 14 crochet and knitting bloggers, designers, and makers. (You can also find roundups of my 2013 and 2012 Hispanic Heritage Month interviews.)
