Sweet Bird Crochet

About - Sweet Bird Crochet


When it's time for a trusted tech editor, you get a mama bird who will take you under her wing! *

*Well, one who at least cares about educating through the Tech Editing process & raising a designer’s voice in their pattern. 

Not knowing if your pattern is ready- shouldn’t be the thing holding you back from publishing professional patterns!

Honestly, if your unedited patterns aren’t making sales, they could also be causing you to lose trust with your ideal audience!

Because no, your pattern instructions – and creative design template doesn’t always speak for itself. 

Ugh….I know, that’ll make any bird ruffle its feathers!


You're just our kind of feathery friend: Step into my nest and let's talk!

I started my business because I saw a huge need in the crochet community for designers to have the support and education they desired.


I take a different approach than most Tech Editors out there:

No. 1

I don’t just edit patterns: I empower designers by educating through the editing process. 

No. 2

I don’t believe designers should be in the creative world on their own: I empower designers through mentorship and accountability. 

No. 3

I believe it’s possible to publish professional patterns in an oversaturated market and get noticed

In Short, I love serving crochet designers and helping them publish professional patterns!

I’m an empty nester living in the metro Atlanta area with my husband, our dogger, and our feathered toddler who loves Triscuits as much as we do! You know I’d put down my Triscuits box to work with someone like you!


Let’s pour a cup of coffee and get those patterns edited — starting with yours!

I've been an avid crocheter for over 15 years. I've always had a love for pattern writing and caught on very quickly to the crochet language! So, I guess you could say I'm bilingual!

As I stepped into the world of crochet design, I discovered there wasn't a lot of designing resources for aspiring crochet designers. Actually, there wasn’t very many resources for crochet designers, period.

So, I went on a mission to learn everything I could about designing crochet projects like blankets, bags, accessories, amigurumi, and more!

and I want to teach you all the knowledge I've gained over the years!

Everyone in the crochet community knows I value education. I've had a heart for teaching as long as I can remember. My love for knowledge and teaching led me to become a Certified Crochet Instructor.

Not only do I educate designers through the services I offer, but I also teach a variety of online and virtual crochet classes.

around here, I'm all about education and mentorship

The Squawk Box

What's your favorite motto?

“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.” -Ben Franklin.

Favorite hook and size?

I love all my Nelsonwood hooks! Hands down, the best hooks I’ve ever crocheted with! I love me a size H-8! It’s just so versatile.

Who are your hero's?

My Savior and Best Friend, Jesus, My husband, and Mike Heiser (an incredible bible nerd and teacher)

What do you collect?

I have an absolute love for pens! I am very picky with which pens end up in my collection though. The finer it can write, the better! 

Go-To Drink?

I love a good, strong cup of coffee or a large Chick-fil-a coke with extra ice! I also love me a ginger beer (no, it’s not really beer) with freshly squeezed lime!

What's your favorite playlist?

This completely depends on my mood and what I’m doing. I listen to anything from classical piano to ghetto Christian rap.

Don’t just take my word for it

Cherie's skill and care as a tech editor was such a blessing as I prepared to publish my first pattern. She walked me through the editing and publishing process step by step, and gave me such a boost of confidence in the quality of my pattern. I'm so grateful to her for all her advice and hard work.
