As a “baby boomer”my parents taught me the survival skills of sewing, embroidery, kitting & crocheting. Yes my dad did beautiful embroderies & crocheted table cloths, dressing table sets as well as blankets.
After leaving home & marrying I attended workshop & lessons for many crafts, spinning & weaving were my preferences for many years.
In the late 80s & 90s I attended felting workshops but didn’t continue the practice due to lack of space & time. However the advent of nuno felting, incorporating wool & material reignited my interest. I love going shopping for interesting material!
