The Designer: Maxine Velasco

Maxine Velasco is the crochet designer behind Diceberry Designs. She lives in California. Crochet has been an on-off relationship for a decade until running into a crochet toy contest and receiving positive support from her first design in 2013. Since then, she’s married her passion for art, geekery, and the unusual into molding unique craft work with crochet and amigurumi makes. Her work has been featured in books and online magazine publications, with her biggest feat at the New York RESOBOX exhibit in 2016. She is hopeful to reach more crochet milestones in the future.
