Biggest UK Crochet and Craft YouTube Channel

Me, your host, Laura Eccleston at +HappyBerry Crochet 
Stats as of 1st November 2015.

Most of the time I don't pay attention to stats, but as I'm on track to hit 200,000 YouTube subscribers by the end of the year, with 181,000+ as of today, it's hard not to be astonished at the sheer size of my audience, and perhaps a little daunted!

It has also come to my attention (courtesy of my husband who does enjoy stats) that I may, just may, now be the biggest British crochet YouTuber, and possibly the biggest UK craft channel? What is this craziness??

I even have more subscribers than British Vogue, which let's face it, is pretty awesome!

And I only really started sharing tutorials in 2011, so I think that means I may also be the fastest growing crafty channel too!

Of course it is only thanks to you guys.

So as we near the end of 2015, I want to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU. Thank you for all your ongoing support, kind words, donations and messages. You help keep me motivated, inspired and of course designing! I will soon be recording my annual vlog talking about everything that has happened this year and what we can look forward to in 2016, so do look out for that.

In the meantime, let's check out some other awesome craft and crochet channels from around the British countryside, starting with the beautiful Sarah-Jayne, a fellow British crochet designer and her channel. I hope you enjoy.

I went on to YT to find some tutorials to help me and your channel was the first to come up in my search. Now only 9 months later, there is practically nothing that I can not crochet. I have made so many things! From Amigrumi (30 of them now) to creating a very lovely afghan with using your tutorial on how to crochet your Vintage Granny Squares, and los of stuff in between. Thank you for taking the time to create these wonderful videos and sharing them with so many of us.
