About the Instructor: Margo Bauman
Margo Bauman – aka flyingflower on Ravelry – learned to crochet from her Grandmother. While she occasionally spent some time working on crochet projects while growing up, and later in college, she didn’t devote much time to it until the 2000’s. Since then, she has won a considerable number of 1st place ribbons at the St. Mary’s County Fair for her exceptional work. Her beautiful crochet pieces can be seen at the woman’s cooperative called Fuzzy Farmers Market in Leonardtown MD.
Over the past few years, Margo has created a number of original designs. Her very first pattern, Oh, Honey! Tunisian Spa Cloth, was released as a free pattern on Ravelry in March 2015. Later that year it was a Crochet Awards (aka the Flamies) Judges Nominee.
