Drew Emborsky

Drew EmborskyDrew Emborsky, aka The Crochet Dude, was taught to crochet at age five by his mom while snowbound in Lake Tahoe. After studying fine arts in college and doing the "starving artist" thing for a few years, he found solace in crocheting for charity while grieving the passing of his mother. It was during this time with the charity group that he became known as "The Crochet Dude", which then led to the launch of his wildly popular blog in 2005.

Drew blogs and creates from his studio in Houston, TX with his cats Chandler and Cleocatra.

Drew is the crochet expert on the hit show Knit & Crochet Now! airing currently on PBS nationwide.

He has been featured in national publications including BUST Magazine, Interweave Crochet, Knit.1, Knit 'n Style, Knit Simple, and Crochet Today!, as well as international newspapers such as The Sunday Telegraph (in London).
