Maria Bonfardeci share with us her tutorial.

“Hi Maria, thank you for your e-mail! I’m very glad that you want to participate with your tutorial here in my Pinky Time” and I can’t wait to find out how to make your original crochet frames”

“Hi Giulia, my name is Maria! I’m Sicilian and I live in Isola delle Femmine! I love the sea and I like taking long walks along the seafront.

One of my passions is crocheting, but I also know how to cross stitch and knit.

I learned to crochet as a child, thanks to “Aunt Rosa”.

Now I’ve started making tutorials on YouTube that gratify me a lot and I like doing them.”
