I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

My grandfather was a woodshop teacher and can build just about anything and my grandma knew how to a sew a bit but I didn't really get crafty until I found Craftster.  I have pretty much taught myself the things I know how to do using tutorials or just giving it a go!

My mom was always doing something with her friends.  There was hot glue and glitter around growing up, she was a guide and brownie leader and was alwyas practiccing crafts at home. She also knits. And spins, and weaves. She taught me to embroider when i quit smoking the first time. Wink

My aunts all sew or knit or crochet. My gramma knit as well and i inHerited the amazing crossstitches she made while pregnant.

My main crafts tho, stained glass and quilting.  Came about cause i was bored. Smiley

My aunt taught me how to crochet, and I will be forever grateful to her for that.  It is such a major part of my life.  But I've always liked crafts ever since I can remember.  Trying out new mediums for me is thanks to Craftster!

I'm blessed that I've passed on my love for crafting to my girls!  I think it's an important outlet and skill for people to have in life.

My mom taught me to hand sew and cross stitch and my grandma introduced me to crochet.   Smiley   Although I couldn't get the hang of crochet until a few years ago.

Oh this is a hard one to answer - even though my mom had a sewing machine I don't ever remember seeing her sew.  I learned in home ec in grade 8.  Mom did a lot of cross stitch so she must have taught me but I don't remember.  She also crocheted but insists she didn't teach me because we hold our yarn different.  I think she did but then I was away from it for so long that when I started again I just did what felt right.  I learned to knit from you-tube, taught myself quilting by trial and error and painting from a good friend.

My mom sewed all the time but I took it up in school.  Mother also embroidered some.  I just branched out on my own for most things that I make.  I have been doing crafts forever it seems!

There has always been crafting in my life.  Mom made things for me as a kid (hair clips, sundresses, Halloween costumes), and she did cross stitching and crochet.  My grandmother did needlepoint, plastic canvas things like tissue boxes or coasters, and cross stitch.  Mom enrolled me in a few different 4H classes during the summer so I learned how to sew that way.  We had polymer clay in the house when I was little because it could be baked and Mom could control it more than she could Playdough.  She taught me cross stitch when I was 8 or 9 maybe.  Then when I was 17 she tried to teach me crochet....  but like most (I do emphasize most) 17 year old girls I knew everything and didn't want to learn.  I went off to college at 18 and during the fall semester of my sophomore year I called her and said "I think I want to learn how to crochet now"  She was somewhat annoyed with me.   Roll Eyes  So through various weekends home and phone calls I learned how to crochet.  And that was 11 almost 12 years ago now.  Since then I did finally pick up knitting even though I claimed it would NEVER happen.  I went back to polymer clay because of childhood memories and I picked up embroidery because of Craftster.  I figured if I could cross stitch, I could embroider.  Mom dug out her books for me and voil!  I've dabbled in other things but crochet, knitting, embroidery, sewing and polymer clay are my favorites.  

Sorry to ramble on folks!  Smiley
