About Me


Gwyn Goodrow-Crochet GetawayHello there!

I’m Gwyn Goodrow, the founder of Crochet Getaway. If you are searching for crochet escapades in stunning locales, you are in the RIGHT place!

What You Will Find Here at Crochet Getaway

Crochet Getaway features current events in the crochet and yarn industries with relevant tips for travel and smart spending. As I travel, I visit local yarn shops, buy yarn, understand regional design concepts and talk with artists.

Feeding My Soul with Crochet and Travel

Feeding my soul – That’s how I describe the impact of both crochet and travel in my life. And in the words of a favorite hymn, “It is well with my soul” when I am on the road, in airports, on a train, or on a bus – if I have a little crochet project to keep me company.

Yarn Shops and Yarn Events

I am always on the lookout for yarn-oriented destinations, experiences, and products.  I welcome the opportunity to work with tourism organizations and businesses to promote their products and services when there is a compelling fit.

Local yarn shops, let me be your partner to reach that specific demographic of worldly crocheting enthusiasts who are adventurous and active but still seek knowledge to improve upon their artwork. With lots of enthusiasm and years of experience in information technology, tourism, and promotional products industries, I’m an experienced business professional with a passion for helping small businesses and consumers.

About my Marketing Programs and Video Services

Do you need a targeted marketing program? Take a look at these short video clips as an economical avenue for promoting your message.  Ask me about affordable promotional packages with social media consulting and a set of three 60 second videos.

Let’s Cruise!

Have you considered launching an annual cruise event for your LYS customers? I can help! I have degrees and certifications, a graduate degree in marketing, and 20+ years of experience in hi-tech industries.  More importantly, my professional resume includes management consulting for small businesses and years of relevant experience at several Fortune 100 companies. I’ve worked hands-on in several retail ventures, bringing a real-world knowledge to every consulting project.

Let’s Partner Up for Success

In other words, when you work with me you are working with a business partner who understands your perspective as a business owner.  I offer competitive rates for such consulting and partnering opportunities as event reviews and promotions, local yarn shop reviews, press releases for events or shops, crafting product reviews, and advertising on my websites. I’m open to other ideas, too!

If you are interested in working together, let’s talk! I look forward to hearing from you and getting to know you!  My email address is gwyn@crochetgetaway.com.
