About Cozy Coils Crocheting

My name is Paula Dworatzek and I  began crocheting when my grandmother taught me at age 8. She said that I had a natural talent for it, and I enjoyed making things like potholders. Later as a teen, I began an afghan, but it took me years to finish it. I was very busy with my career, which started with a Home Economics degree. My specialization, however, was not textiles as you might expect, but foods and nutrition. I am now a Professor of Nutrition at Brescia University affiliated with Western University, in London ON Canada (here is a weblink if you are interested: https://brescia.uwo.ca/directory/paula_dworatzek.php). I am also a mother of 3 lovely young women, pics of whom you might see from time to time. As a young adult, I mistakenly thought I didn’t have time for my hobbies (except cooking). Now that my girls are not children anymore, I have a little more time on my hands, so I put them to good use, crocheting. I love it more than ever and realize that it would have provided much needed stress relief over the years.

I started Cozy Coils Crocheting in 2021, with a small number of patterns for makers who like textured, modern crochet projects. I aim to grow my pattern base over time. I hope that you will find something of interest to you and that it will make you Cozy while Coiling!
