Craft Moods is a family operated business that has
been concentrating on the design, publication and distribution of
Australian craft related patterns and crochet/knitting/needlework books since 1990. While
most publications are originated in-house, we also publish and
distribute for other
authors. We are currently only publishing in-house and are not
accepting outside works from other authors.
Patterns and Publications
Paragon crochet, tatting, knitting and craft books have been
distributed throughout Australia since the 1930's. Craft Moods
took over the copyright and publishing of all Paragon
publications in July 1995, and is in the long process of revising
and republishing many of the old books that have been out of
print for decades.
