  • Hello

    Hi all, how nice to find a good general craft forum that's UK based.

    I have tried all sorts, when I was younger (I'm only 40 ish now, I just made myself sound so very old) I loved Aran knitting and Crochet but found that my fingers couldn't cope with this and typing at work. I love embroidery, have done a lot of cross stitch and discovered Crewel embroidery lately. I was quite fond of parchment craft but havn't done any for a while. I have made my own clothes, including my wedding outfit and enjoyed bead jewellery making.

    What I keep going back to and am currently doing to the exclusion of other crafts is handmade patchwork on papers. It takes so long I know but I find half and hour after work quite releaves my stress. I just never have got round to trying it on the machine yet.

    I would love to know what you all enjoy most and, it would be really nice to know I'm not the only hand pieced patchwork nut around!

    Best wishes to you all
    Anita

      Hi Anita. Wow you have a lot of interests. My passion is jewellery making and I particularly like knitted and crocheted wire jewellery.. there are so many different types of crafters here that I'm sure you'll come across others who share your crafts.

          Hello and welcome. Knitting and crochet go in phases for me and I'm not in a 'phase' at the moment so I'm quilting. I have done patchwork on papers and yes, it is a bit fiddling but, as you say, rewarding. Do you like aplique too.
          You seem to have very wide interests - good luck to you.

            Hello Anita and welcome to the forum from a card maker (uses the term loosely). You certainly sound as if you have tried a great variety of crafts. I am sure you will enjoy the forum and maybe you will end up adding some more crafts to your list. Enjoy.
