Meet Rebeckah of Rebeckah’s Treasures
I enjoy visiting Rebeckah’s Treasures and seeing what she’s been up to lately. Rebeckah, the owner, is extremely talented, kind, honest, generous, knowledgeable, a great friend, and I enjoy getting to chat with her. She is willing to share her knowledge with others, shares other crochet designer’s projects, help out when she has the time, and much more.
Tell me a little something about your personal life ~ kids, family, pets, etc.
Hubs and I are going on seven wonderful years together. He makes me smile each day and totally gets my love of crochet. Whenever he can, he brings me more yarn to add to my stash and brags about me to his friends. As a matter of fact, it was his idea/encouragement that got me to start my blog and share my crochet. We have no children yet (we are both still young), but I know when they come he will be a wonderful father too, and of course, I can’t wait to be a mom!
How long have you been crocheting?
I’ve been crocheting for 16 years. Mom taught me when I was 10.
What are your favorite items to make?
Barbie clothes and softies are my most favourite things to crochet. I have always loved crocheting for barbies ever since I first learned how. Amigurumi is a newer love. Hair accessories are also fun!
What are your favorite yarns (brands or types to work with?
I love my Circulo Clea cotton thread. There are so many amazing colours to choose from and it is perfect for making fashion doll clothes!
Where do you get your inspiration from?
Everywhere! Friends, family, fans, things I see… Inspiration is all around me and often a current project will turn into several more.
How long have you been blogging? Why did you start blogging?
I have been blogging over 2 years now. It will be 3 years in March. I started as a way to share what I was making and just to have some fun. It has evolved so much over these years and now I also share crochet patterns and crochet patterns I find.
What is your favorite thing about crocheting and/or blogging?
My favourite thing about crocheting is the pure enjoyment I get from creating or discovering something new. As for blogging, it’s all about connections. I love being able to meet new people who share the same interests as me. Blogging is such a great way to get together with others.
What is your favorite item on your blog at the moment?
Right now, I am in love with my Grape Ape Monkey. She’s purple, so that might have a little something to do with it and she’s stinkin’ cute! Plus, she’s a free pattern to boot.

What would be the one piece of advice you would give to a person setting up their own blog?
Find a platform that is easy for you to understand and work with. If it is easy for you, you will love it more, and then we get to see more of your work too!
How do fellow bloggers get their patterns featured on your sites?
I do bi-weekly roundups and love featuring both free and premium/pay crochet patterns. Right now I am in the middle of an animal theme which I started in April. It has been a blast finding our favourite animals. Anyways, I have a consent form on my site. All you need to do is fill it in and check the consent box. I’ll see it and add you to my designer’s list. You can get the form HERE!
