audio, Beautiful People


I am delighted to share the opportunity to meet the designer behind Fresh Stitches: Stacey Trock.

Stacey has found a wonderful niche in the crafting world: she designs unique crochet patterns!

I don’t want to share too much here in written words as it would be ever so much more fun to listen as Stacey shares what makes her tick, what energizes her work day and how she balances hard work and great customer service with time to knit and develop a family.  For those who are interested in a successful brand, Stacey has a lot to share! Her insight and plan for business is shared in a way that may help you incorporate new ways to think about and treat your businessShe also has a healthy take on Work/Life balance! Interestingly enough…if she had it her way, she’d be a marathon organizer… seriously, you need to treat yourself to this interview just to hear the story behind that!

As you prepare to listen to Stacey, I have a little something to keep your hands busy! If you start when the interview starts you should be pau hana at the conversation’s end! Grab a wee bit of delightful yarn and head here to make Lehua, pictured here. It is a free pattern gift from me.  If you decide to knit this, show me your progress by using the #LehuaWithMel  Be sure to create a project page on Ravelry! You may be excited to hear more on that in days to come…


If you aren’t a knitter and would rather crochet, venture this way for a free crochet pattern on Stacey’s website Fresh Stitches. This adorable little pumpkin is a free pattern just perfect for this time of year!

    I had the pleasure of taking a crochet class with Stacey in person. She is just as lovely in person as she is in her online classes and videos and her kits are so much fun. Thanks for posting this interview, Mel!
