Madelle Borschman
Madelle is a dyed in the wool (pun intended) crafter, having tried her hand at cross-stitch, sewing, weaving, painting and more, but the one that has stuck the most has been crochet. Having rediscovered the joy of crocheting during Melbourne's lockdowns, she is very excited to meet a new community of crocheters and pass on the love of this versatile and approachable craft.
