About Us


Phyllis, our chief crochet designer, started Many Creative Gifts in April of 2005 when she rediscovered her passion for crochet. She is now the Crochet Guru at www.crochet.lifetips.com and explores all of her areas of interest on her blog, so please visit her there! For beautiful handmade crocheted items, see her latest offerings on Etsy or email her at contact [at] manycreativegifts.com with your desires and specifications for a custom-made item!

Are you in the Washington, D.C., area? Then check out Phyllis’s group and individual crochet classes at Looped Yarn Works, our favorite yarn store in Dupont Circle, under the “Learn to Crochet” tab.




Helen joined Phyllis in this adventure during the summer of 2008 (but she has been an ardent supporter from the beginning) when she finished her Masters of Science in Holistic Nutrition. Together, we have been writing and distributing a monthly newsletter and providing valuable information about the healing properties of various phytonutrients in our foods.

We’re excited to announce that Helen recently published a children’s book Eat Lots of Colors that’s an educational but fun way for kids to learn about their fruits and vegetables, and she and Phyllis are collaborating on a set of cookbooks for Mom and Dad with great recipes, extensive nutritional information, and fresh foods storage tips, to be published soon.



So, where to start? Anywhere you want! This site is full of resources and options, so please get comfortable and explore. If you have any questions or comments, please let us know at contact [at] manycreativegifts.com

Oh, and we want to let you know that all of our recommendations are from personal, unsolicited experiences — we will let you know if we have any connections to or compensation from featured sources (for example, we are an Amazon affiliate, so we do appreciate your product purchases through our links rather than directly from the Amazon site).
