I thought that it would be nice to nice a moment to let everyone know that if we do enjoy making things... what are they? 

Are you a knitter,  sewist, crochet etc.. what do you enjoy most?


I learnt to knit when I was about age 6, my grandmother taught me to make cotton dish cloths...I didn't attempt anything again until I was 20 when I almost made a cardigan but didn't finish it 🤣  I didn't pick up my needles again until about 3 years ago... and now I confess that I have an addiction!


I also enjoy spinning,  I learnt about 30 years ago and I would love to weave...


Sewing is something else that brings me joy, and I'm aiming for a made by me wardrobe... that may take a long while though 😋


I also have my own yarn business,  as a indie dyer...I dye yarn into pretty colours and sell online.

My mum always made all our clothes and knitted (I think more out of necessity than choice) she tried to teach me to knit as s child, but I couldn't get it. I eventually learnt from a book when I was nearly 30.


I can now crochet a bit too, I'm very much a newbie though.


I really want to sew. My husband bought me a sewing machine a few years ago and I've still not really got round to making anything. I like the idea of upcycling and reusing. I fell in love with the print on some curtains in the charity shop this week, so I've brought them with the intention of making a skirt it dress. Watch this space! 😀

Necessity is the mother of invention. I learned to sew, crochet,  hand knit, needlework , hot glue (you name it) because I was 17 when I had my first child and 28 when I had my 5th. We were poor. I tried to teach all my children only 1 followed. I love creating things. It gives me a pick up to make something I need. I love the challenge. I think my best accomplishment was crocheting my daughter a coat and hat and lining them because we couldn't afford a winter coat for her. It was beautiful and I know Jehovah helped me. I recently made a dress no pattern, just to see what that would be like. I wore it and plan to again.

I wanted to do many things but never got the chance to do any of it. Due to circumstances. 


I sit a lot and want to learn how to sew mostly, knit, scrapbooking and crafts to name a few.  My most passionate thing to do is deliver babies!❣ Oh, we not talking about that stuff, okay, sorry I got sidetracked. 🙋🏾‍♀️


I have a cheap sewing machine still in the box because of no place to set it up or learn anything about using it. I have cheap craft thingies that don't amount to nothing except for entertaining my grandbabies. I don't know how to knit yet either but will learn even if it takes the new world to do so with all things like  gardening, building homes etc. 


I'd love a personal teacher and not a video or book.  However, while I wait to learn I'd love to see all of you all's work too❣👍🏼

I can use a sewing machine for crafts but wish i knew how to sew clothes. I can basic crochet but can’t read a pattern. I cross stitch, counted only, but want to do hardanger and needlepoint. I wish i could build things, my house needs a remodel but no budget. I want to study with a pioneer, i feel ive not retained knowledge.
