Crochetscene 2017 Behind the Scenes
What goes on behind the scenes of a magazine photo shoot?
You know, the usual: hair, make-up, beautiful models, stylish crochet and a little bit of arm wrestling. That’s what I expected at the photo shoot with Marcy Smith and Vickie Howell co-editing Crochetscene 2017. But instead it was a beautiful, collaborative, and fun filled 3 days in the warm summer sun in Fort Collins, CO. We snapped photos in a neighborhood park, in a tiny 200 square foot loft apartment and at the historic Fort Vasquez.
Take a peek at all the hard work and a few of the laughs we shared bringing you this crochet extravaganza known as Crochetscene 2017.
