But why would you want to? And why do we care?
Back in the day everyone was crafty. Out of necessity, or just lack of the internet, people would spend lots of time crafting. They didn’t call it crafting then, it’s just what people did – knitting, crocheting, quilting, embroidery, sewing – it was just part of life. And it was done all the time – just think of groups of women (Ok, it was usually women then…) embroidering or knitting around a fire, while catching up on the latest gossip or watching the kids.
Fast forward to today. We don’t have to knit anymore to clothe ourselves (thank goodness!), but now we turn to craft for a creative outlet and relaxation. But why does it have to be something hidden away in a back room or on a lonely friday night?? In our busy schedules, crafting often gets cut out. But if you combine it with socializing with your friends, and work it into your daily routine, you can have bursts of creativity throughout the day. Plus, crafting with friends is fun. You’ll get creative inspiration for projects, learn new skills and have support when you frog that sweater yet again!
