Meet the Maker

Posted by Cathleen Gough

Meet Rachel Heck.  

Rachel makes crochet items, mostly scarves, shawls, and blankets. Rachel is open to trying anything upon request.  “Part of the fun is learning and trying out new ideas!”  We are sure that Rachel can work her magic to create many beautiful products. Shop Rachel's store Cozy as Heck. 

How and why did you choose to work with your current medium?

“I started crocheting years ago as a way to stay busy during some difficult things that I was going through. For me it’s therapeutic and relaxing, as well as satisfying to see a project completed. I really enjoy being creative with colors as well as making something that can bring someone joy.” 

What is your favorite/most inspirational creation?

“I actually really enjoy making blankets although I don’t do them as often because of the time and planning involved. The amount of creativity in mixing colors, patterns, and stitches really speaks to me.” 

What is your goal as a maker?

“I want to make things that people will love and enjoy for years to come. Seeing my creations make someone smile is the absolute best feeling!”
