About Sonja Bates

Sonja Bates

I hand make crochet items. I am also a professional artist see www.sonjabates.co.uk I love my work and I hope you will too!

I started crochet when my children were small and now they are teenagers I have some more time again to create my own designs. I learnt in the local wool shop here in Stroud, Gloucestershire England at the weekly knit and knitter meet ups. I work from home (or the garden) I love using modern colours and mixing them with traditional patterns like the granny square.

This is my therapy and I find the colours uplifting and the rhythm of the crochet soothing when I am ever stressed or need to think or relax.

I am also an artist by trade and I paint watercolour scenes of peoples houses and gardens. I paint in oil too, fish and insects mainly. Please see my website for my artwork: www.sonjabates.co.uk
