Gantsilyo Guru started as a hobby by the owner Ms. Trey. She picked up her first crochet hook when she was still at 3rd year high school home economics class.
She eventually started online yarn and supplies shop around 2015 and eventually setting up her own shop after a year or so in business.
My mother , an aunt and sister know how to crochet , Unfortunately i never pick-up the hobby , which will require long hours of crocheting and pattern weaving . I first learned the art of crochet when i was in first year high school in which it was part of the T.H.E. ( Technology , Home Economics and Livelihood Education) some of my classmates made small dress and bonnets , but after about 3 weeks, I only managed to finished a small pouch bag. ( Not really my cup of tea)
I was invited by a friend to accompany him to buy some yarn at the supply store. We decided to just walk from SM Megamall to Shaw boulevard in Pasig . It was raining heavy and we manage to arrive around past 4:00pm at the shop.
I was impress with the large amount of yarn, supplies and books , some of which are directly imported from Japan by the owner.
We were also met by the owner/ proprietor when we visited her craft store, glad to share some of her skills and i took time venting out some of my personal life struggles. The area is well-lighted and products are clearly labeled.
The store also offers some basic lesson about crochet , try to visit their fb page .
