Hi! I'm Claire and I own Horizontal Designs, and crochet and do other artisan crafts from home.

Horizontal Designs was created after I started selling custom crochet and jewelry pieces I had been making for friends from home while recovering from a long (really long!) hospital stay. Before Horizontal Designs, I owned a successful floral design business that was featured in national magazines and was very active in the local wedding/event industry. We had to shut down when I suddenly was hospitalized for 9 months during the pregnancy of my second child, which caused a major flare up of my chronic health condition I have been living with for over a decade.

Design and art and creating beautiful and funky fun things is in my blood, so when I had to adapt to my new health situation (which has thankfully improved), I began crocheting and creating new things I could do from home.

Prior to my floral design business, I was a published research scientist studying marine biology. I love the ocean, science, and nature, so many of my designs carry these themes. I also love funky whimsical stuff, steampunk Victorian style, geeky things, vintage and rockabilly fashion. And pirates absolutely rule.

My business is named Horizontal Designs in honor of my condition, Dysautonomia, which causes people to faint (among other things) and end up horizontal. I luckily am on the mend, but this name honors those that are still struggling with being vertical on a daily basis, it can be a very debilitating condition. I helped found and am president of a nonprofit that helps patients and educates medical professionals with my condition, Dysautonomia SOS, so partial proceeds from the awareness and charity line go to support this cause.

I could not do this without my family, and my husband, kids, parents, and everyone else are both an inspiration and support for me in everything I do. I say, "our shop" often, because they are such a huge part of making this work.

Hi again, Just wanted to tell you I found out that i was not using the correct J hook after all. I had another crochet project going, and somehow picked the hook for that one instead of the J hook. I just wanted you to know the scarf is going great now. Thanks again for the pattern!

So glad to hear this! enjoy the scarf :)

I really like your lacy spring scarf, and bought the same yarn you suggested. I found my scarf to be only 4 inches wide, and that was with 24 chains to start instead of the 18. I used the J hook. What am I doing wrong? Would appreciate your help. I also want to tell you I admire you for your strength for over-coming your health problems. God Bless... bobmarcine1956@yahoo.com Thanks....

I admire u very much when I was sick I didnt want to do anything

Many days I don't either, I just have to stay sane :) LOL
