History of International Crochet Day

When is the International Crochet day?

We celebrate the International Crochet day on September 12th.

Jimbo’s Front Porch declared this international holiday for the first time back in 2007.Here’s what Jimbo said about why he started it:

internation crochet day“I have thought for a long time now that the art of crochet and those who practice the art deserve some significant recognition. And so in my great power as the Ruthless Tyrant of my vast hook empire have decided to declare that Sept 12, 2007 will be a Holiday that I’m cleverly calling “International Crochet Day”. I’m giving everyone who works for me (ME) a day off. You just go ahead and take the day off too…. tell’em Jimbo said it’s ok (see where that gets you!)”

International Crochet Day is not some huge holiday that everyone knows about but it’s a holiday that has gained awareness and attention year upon year. Crochet gets a lot more praise as a craft these days than it did even five years ago when the holiday was launched. By celebrating this holiday, you celebrate your craft, the crafty community and creativity in general!
