After a full career in the South African Film and Television industry, Wendi has found her niche at Maggie’s Crochet. To start, she needed to learn the American terminology of the crochet stitches and hooks. Yarn weights were also new to her. Her work days are full and varied; helping clients with pattern problems, translating Maggie’s ‘secret code’ to write up patterns, formatting other patterns, sending new patterns to Peggy (for testing) and lots more. She enjoys the challenges of her job!
