Hello! I’m Ceci, the designer and instructor behind Mamma! Do It Yourself. In this enthusiastic Crochet and Knitting blog you will find inspiration and education for knitting and crochet lovers of all levels. I have been dedicated to Handmade and Crafts for more than 25 years and I have committed to continue learning, exploring and sharing all my discoveries, tips and tricks not only to knit and crochet better, but also to be a creative designer entrepreneur!
What is Mamma! Do It Yourself?
Mamma! It is a full-blown call to action and therefore has an exclamation point in the middle of the sentence.
This project began to haunt my head in 2013, it is the natural evolution of my previous project called El Rincón de Teo. I was looking for a change in my working life and found the perfect balance with my personal life at Mamma! Do It Yourself.
I am a mother of 2 children, Teo and Lui, the loves of my life and owning my time is essential to be able to offer them the best of me.
I am also a very creative person! In my old project I was conditioned to make large quantities of the same design and also sell it as a finished product to whoever liked it. Instead with Mamma! Do It Yourself I found the perfect formula for my creativity to expand to the maximum and to be able to create different designs constantly, which leads me to investigate new techniques, tools, technologies, not only to be able to share it with you but also to be able to grow and evolve as an artisan and maker!
Mamma! Do It Yourself is my full-time job, where I record videos, write patterns, teach face-to-face and online, collaborate with yarn brands and publications.
Who I am?
I was born in Córdoba, Argentina, although I have not lived there since 2000, when it occurred to me to go around the world with only a backpack.
I was traveling and living as a backpacker nomad for many years, always doing crafts on the way and living from it, I love it!
With the arrival of Teo, my oldest son, I decided to settle in Catalonia, in a very beautiful little town surrounded by nature, called Sant Pere de Ribes.
I am a very curious person, very creative, I love to learn new things permanently and share it with whoever is interested.
I am an inveterate traveler, I love not only traveling, but also living with other cultures and learning everything they want to share with me.
I also studied Theater independently and at the University for many years, which helped me to have more confidence and security when communicating, I was not always so outgoing!
I like food a lot, especially the recipes originating from each culture, those that are eaten on the street and in the markets, but I don’t cook. I am addicted to fruit smoothies and I really like to exercise to keep fit and in a good mood!
Crochet and Knitting is my passion and I am always enrolled in an online course to continue learning and studying.
Do you want to learn with me?
I am a very good instructor! If there’s one thing I like, it’s teaching other people and making sure they meet their goals with their technique. All my students sign up for my workshops over and over again for every workshop I publish and are super happy with the results.
