Fast forward to 2012, I decided to become serious with crochet. I met people and discovered the bigger world of crafting in the country. I met Asther, a hardcore crafter, who told me about the Craft World garage sale. I checked it out and blogged about it just last October. I had no idea that because of that blog entry, people discovered the store and came in herds and bought almost 80% of their entire loot in just 3 months.
Fast forward to this week, I got a text from the storekeeper Ate Fely, telling me that Zeny Perez, the founder and owner of Craft World, wants to meet up.
Fast forward to yesterday, we finally met.

Zeny is already based in Toronto, Canada. She's in the country for a quick visit. She told me she was thankful that I got to feature the sale in my little blog. I told her, "No, thank you!" I don't think I reiterated my thank you enough to let her know that I want to thank her for her contributions to crafting in the country.
I "unearthed" 2 articles from 2001 from the Philippine Daily Inquirer featuring Craft World. I encourage you to click on the images so you can be directed to the material. They will make you appreciate Craft World even more.
