Paula Gaumer Tooke

Paula Gaumer Tooke is a retired middle school teacher, 34 years in 6th grade and middle schools. During her years in the classroom, there was very little time for crochet. She took up cross stitch, except for special occasions.

Paula learned how to crochet when she was in 4th grade. She didn’t crochet anything until her senior year in high school. She wanted a ripple afghan to take to college. She found a kit for a blue one, her favorite color, and started it. 

While in college, crocheting was, again, on the back burner. But, when Paula found out a few years after college that she was going to become an aunt, out came the hooks and she started making baby sweaters.

Throughout her teaching career, she would pick up her crochet hooks when anyone she was close to had a baby. If they were real close, they received a full sized granny square afghan. If just a friend, usually a sweater and a bonnet.

Upon retirement, her husband and she moved from North Central Indiana to Western New York. Out of necessity, 5 babies due in 5 months, Paula returned to crocheting and has re-fallen in love with it. She also returned to her roots in cross stitch and has now become a designer in both crochet and cross stitch.
