I spent every summer with my grandmother as a child until I was out of high school. She taught me to crochet, knit, latch hook, embroider, sew, cross stitch and needlepoint ( I don’t remember either of those though), we also did resin crafts, baking, cooking and gardening.
When I had children I was able to teach my daughter to crochet and to knit. As a young mother and business owner she doesn’t have a lot of time to practice either. I believe, as her children grow up and she has more free time it is something she’ll be able to go back to and enjoy
Two of my grandchildren spend two weeks in the summer with me. I am teaching my granddaughter to crochet and knit. But we also paint rocks, we do tie dye, and sharpie tie dye, we attempt all kinds of different crafts. I like being able to pay it forward.
