Vivyane is an amigurumi-designer and the person behind “Happy Crochet, Etc” on Instagram. She fell in the crochet cauldron seven years ago. Until then she was drawing and painting a lot but was looking for a new hobby that would re-boost her creativity and give it a new momentum. That is how she discovered the world of amigurumi. Vivyane is a self-taught crocheter who learned through books and videos, and later decided she wanted to create her own crochet designs.
Skaiste Kivci is a translator and amigurumi designer based in Lithuania. She has been into handicraft ever since she was a child but she happened to get into the charming, colourful world of amigurumi simply out of wanting to bring joy to her kids and friends by my handmade toys. She feels lucky to find this hobby also brought her to like-minded peers and friends. She is a mom of three and living in Lithuania with her family.
Mei Li Lee, better known as Amigurumei, is a self-professed daydreamer who discovered amigurumi by chance. Now she enjoys sharing the joy of the craft with like-minded daydreamers, splitting her hours between being a mom of twin boys and designing magical dolls, each packed with a little unique personality of their own (much like her boys). The former journalist and craft columnist is also the author of Hello Kitty Crochet.
