Psss... Pass it On!

Happy  November!


 I have a few questions for you...

1. What is your favorite craft/trade?
2. How did you learn?
3. Do you see yourself passing on your craft/trade to someone else? OR Is it important to you to pass it on?
4. Who do you hope to pass it on to?

My answers...

1. My favorite craft/trade is crocheting, by far.
2. I learned from my grandmother, Donna when I was just 7 years old. I watched her crochet gifts for neighbors and friends while I spent summers at her house. Finally, after staring at how fast her hands moved, and how fast the projects went, I finally got her to teach me. I spent many, many years in the land of Single Stitch, but it paid off.
3. I absolutely want to pass along the art of crochet to anyone who wants to learn. I think it is such a theraputic outlet (like many crafts), but runs the risk of being a dying art. I can't bare to see that happen! I'm interested in starting classes in the Frederick/Maryland area, or just getting an after-school club together.
4. I hope to pass it on to a younger generation. I love that I have memories of crocheting through every major phase of my life.

Your turn!
