Hey there! I'm Jess Coppom, the founder, perpetual project starter, and lead crochet and knitting designer at Make & Do Crew. With over 30 years of experience crocheting and knitting, I've made a career out of teaching crafters how to create their own beautiful, cozy, and contemporary pieces.
My mom taught me to crochet when I was 8 years old, and she and I have been dedicated to designing patterns that inspire and empower fellow crafters since 2015.
It's truly a labor of love to see our designs come to life in the hands of millions of makers each month.
Even though we’ve been crocheting and knitting for years, our mission is always to design projects with simple shapes and stitches that can be made with basic skills.
Whether you're a beginner taking your first steps in crochet or knitting, or an experienced maker looking for fresh and exciting ideas, we've got you covered.

Get Our Book
I've become such a fan of corner-to-corner crochet over the years and recently had the opportunity to write an entire book about it. Corner to Corner Crochet: 15 contemporary C2C projects covers everything you need to know to get started "painting by number with yarn" and includes patterns for every skill level.
My mom helped crochet many of the samples that are photographed in the book and I'm not sure I would have survived the book-publishing process without her!
