Since it is not possible to search members by country and even though it would be possible many of us don't bother to write their country I am suggesting a new child board for Turkey. I don't have an idea how many turkish user craftster has but I would like to give it a try.

I'm not Turkish but I'm fascinated by the country.  My Dad visited once and it sounds so amazing.  Are you guys "transplants" or born and raised in Turkey?  All of your English is very good so I'm curious...

Some day we should have people who are from different countries write about "the state of crafts" in that country.  It would be very interesting!

well, i am not a "transplant", i was born in here and never been abroad before. Smiley

actually i always would like to do that. in Turkey we have quite interesting crafts which seems like a part of the daily life so that people doesn't think that it is crafting and creating.

tinybits, if you ever want to write an article like this, I'd love to put it on the Craftster Blog.  I think it would be so interesting.

I born and raised in Turkey. I haven't been abroad before.

In Turkey if you want to find a good job and if you have aim to earn a lot money you have to have some difference from the others. The first difference is the languages you know! So usually our second language is english. Thanks for interest Smiley

I'm not sure if anyone reads this anymore either, but my Dad's Turkish, though i live in Australia.  I've only been there twice, but i have a huge family there (by Australian standards anyway - probably just your typical extended Turkish family) and i love the country (of course!).

Hiya
First post here but no I'm not Turkish either.
I'm from Scotland but we have a holiday home near Fethyie in Turkey so it's like a home from home for me. I love everyhting about the country.
One thing that continually amazes me is the crochet work I see.  So many beautiful fine threads and hooks so small they look like darning needles and little girls about 7 or 8 producing some of the most beautiful work I've ever seen

yeah crochet work is more popular and mostly worked with smaller steel hooks. in fact the bigger hooks are popular only recently. the work they create is calling "dantel" andbed spreads, strips to embellish the edges of the sheets, table cloths, table runners, little dollies to  cover the everything around the house is included to this name. also there is another crochet work called "oya" which is colorful thin strips of different crochet patterns which sewn into the edge of the head scarfs named "yemeni". traditional works consider as a part of being a woman so it is usual to teach a small girl how to do it (and this is how i took  crochetting) and it is a traditional to make crocheted house items for a girl to take with her when she get marry. i have seen many women they were doing this (the things girl bring with her to the "husband's" house is called ceyiz) for their baby girls just because it is very imprted to have it and they don't want their daughters to feel "ashamed" of the fact that they don't have any ceyiz...
