About Tahnisha Thomas of Nana’s Hook: 

I received my first crochet lesson when I was just eight years old from my Grandmother, who we affectionately called “Nana”! At the young age of eight years old, I was not a fan of crochet, but I enjoyed spending time with my Nana.

Many years later I wanted to give crochet another try. I began to see how popular it was and oh so beautiful. I looked at patterns, but could not understand written patterns. So, I turned to YouTube for help and, to my surprise, I learned new stitches and techniques. After lots of trial and error, I felt confident enough to start taking orders and even vending at local markets. Bartram’s Garden was one of the first markets that I sold my items. People were buying my items! I was so excited !!

In October of 2017, I decided to start a small business. I was stumped trying to find the perfect name for it. Then I remembered my Nana and the hooks she left behind when she passed in 2004. I decided on the name “Nana’s Hook” in memory of her to carry on her legacy and that is how “Nana’s Hook” was born!
