Meet Eve Weitze, Crochet and Quill Art

If you’ve ever driven on Rough Diamond Drive and noticed either crocheted snowflakes or hearts in the windows, you’ve found Eve and her husband Harry.

Eve is self-taught and excels at many different crafts, esp. quilling and crochet. She showed me photos of her work including gift tags and ornamentation with quilling, crocheted angels, doilies, sachets, potpourri, Christmas ornaments (her favorites), etc. etc. 

In 2012 she entered four items in the Yavapai County Fair and won 7 ribbons. In 2014, the Daily Courier had a contest to select the best decorated Christmas tree. Eve showed me the photo of her wearing a handmade crocheted vest standing by a beautifully decorated tree with all her own handmade ornaments. You guessed it, FIRST PRIZE!!!  For many years she sold her crafts at the Yavapai Hills Fall Craft Show. She has also helped with donations for various charities.

Eve and Harry came to Yavapai Hills as retirees, and each has found a niche here that keeps them involved and busy, and it suits them perfectly. No rocking chairs for them – except to sit out on the back deck and enjoy the view.
