About Me

I am Belén. I am a Spanish woman who has lived in France now for half of my life.

My brand, Señorita Crochet is born in 2013, like many fiber stories after some healthy struggles. In a way it was my therapeutic way to battle against stress and hard times.

Today, I am crochet designer and teacher and I create my own sculptures and I teach how to crochet and knit. One of the things I love the most is to share my knowledge about crochet and how the yarn crafts can be soothing against everyday stress.

My background in Art History and my knowledge about women artists has given me and my work a direction to follow and a tradition to respect.

My fiber story began when I was 9 years old, in 1989 when a friend of my grandmother taught me to crochet.
