Re: Crafting in the Current Economy

sandydandy says, Crafting is calming. In the current state of things it is good to keep your mind off of it.I have plenty of materials and patterns. I have knitting needles and yarn. So I could make clothes for myself and others if need be. I come from a long line of creative women. Amoung them is my grandmother, who during the depression sewed for a dancing teacher so my mother could have free dancing lessons. Things were not easy when I was young. My mother used to take skirts apart that were out of style and make us tops that matched our skirts. My sister and I looked like fashion plates.With just a few ideas on how to reuse something I could recreate things that could be reused. In the past I have taken a pattern and with a few changes I came up with a different version. So believe me I could get the creative juices flowing.

Re: Crafting in the Current Economy

I think that crafting is very relaxing. In this current state of things it is good to keep your mind off of it. I am scared to death. I think we are in a depression already. I have a stash of material and patterns . I can make my own clothes if need be. I also have knitting needles and yarn.I have taken patterns before and made changes to make it a differnt way. I come form a long line of creative women. My grandmother during the depression sewed for a dancing teacher and my mother had free dance lessons. I could use my skills and reuse something I have for something else. My mother used to take skirts that had gone out of style and make tops out of them. My sister and I looked like fashion plates. So with some ideas I could create. That would make be feel good being able to keep clothes on my back that are fashionable. Sandydandy
