I think being creative and doing crafts was mandatory for being in my family. My mom was very creative and was always busy with something. Growing up she would always be canning, baking, sewing, embroidering, macramé, decorating and on and on. As kids we were expected to participate and I learned to embroider around eight or nine, crochet when I was ten, wood burning was somewhere in there too. I think I learned to sew around ten or eleven years old.
I’ve very grateful for my mom’s expectations for us to do these things. It’s what led me into woodworking and book making and helped me in photography. I’ve just started sewing, so I may see some of that here.
