hello everyone my name is Nicole
am in my late 20s and am i have tried so many crafts ie Salt dough /paper mache, drawing, painting, clay modelling ,card making, the list goes on and on and i ain't getting anywhere most of the above crafts causes so much pain the drawing does not and card making just not enjoying them

i wanna be able to do something that will not cause me more pain and be able to stick at it and get better at it

I think that it depends on your own personal abilities/limitations. I have fibromyalgia and have for as long as I can recall. Certainly if I spend hours hunched over my sewing machine all tense with my shoulders scrunched up my neck, back, wrists, etc. will hurt a lot. I take breaks and I don't have problems. I wet felt, needlefelt, sew, knit, crochet, etc. without difficulty. I can see how heavy kneading or really any repeated motion with the joints could cause pain. Good luck to yo in your new crafty pursuits.
