I guess I've been crafty for a bit
I think I learned to sew when I was 7 or 8. Mom had just gotten a new Vicking sewing machine. It is a rusty red color, iron body. That machine rocks. She taught me some, I taugh myself more, I took lessons. I’ve been sewing ever since. I remember trying to make a pair of white canvas knee high converse type shoes in the 9th grade. I didn’t do so well, forgot to add fabric for the calves, my legs are wider than my ankles.
In the 6th grade I learned to knit and crochet.
Jewelry making started sometime in high school.
I went to art school, and its been pretty constant ever since……
