Meet The Velvet Acorn!
If you’ve been at home in the craft world for a while you’ve probably heard of The Velvet Acorn. Inspired by nature and stunningly beautiful – crochet patterns by The Velvet Acorn are simply amazing! Meet the woman behind these adorable creations!
Hello, my name is Heidi May and I have a true love for nature…..one of my favorite things is to sit with my cup of coffee in the morning and stare out at the mountains and trees, whether they are filled with snow, falling leaves, or billowed out with spring foliage, I can’t think of anywhere else I would rather be.
Inspired everyday by my children, and really the simple things in life. I have always had a love for knitting and crocheting, there is just something about wrapping up in a wonderfully handmade item…truly filled with love in every stitch. When my first daughter was born I was always looking for items that were feminine, practical with a natural earthy flare. This is where my business started….The Velvet Acorn.
I have three wonderful children. Time goes by so fast and I am very thankful, I cherish every moment we share together and seeing the world through their eyes. I really enjoy cooking, reading and just curling up in front of the fire with a basket full of yarn. I can only hope to share with you my love for nature and all the simple things in life one design at a time.
