A world traveler, Hubert pays close attention to the fashions in Europe and spots trends as they hit New York. In 2012, in fitting tribute to Hubert's lifelong work as a knitting and crochet designer, the Crochet Guild of America inducted her into their Jean Leinhauser Crochet Hall of Fame. Her work and information about the events she attends can be found on her blog: margaretshooksandneedles.blogspot.com. She lives in Pawling, New York.
"Longtime crocheter and designer Hubert explores granny
squares--those classic square crocheted motifs--in this collection
of patterns. A full-color photo of each square is included, as well
as written and charted instructions for crocheting the square.
Crocheters can mix and match their favorite granny squares or
follow one of the variety of included patterns. It's not easy to
make garments and accessories featuring granny squares look fresh
and contemporary, but several of Hubert's creations are quite
fashionable. Crocheters looking to move beyond basic granny
squares, as well as new crocheters drawn to these traditional
motifs, will enjoy this collection." - Library
"This is a great 2011 crochet book to add to your granny square library. It includes crochet patterns for seventy five different crochet squares including the classic granny square and many of its variations." - Kathryn Vercillo, About.com Crochet
