oh wow the horror!
I live in Houston, I see a lot of craftiness around town at all ages. We even have a sewing lounge that was opened by some fairly young looking girls that teach sewing and other crafts, have yet to check it out in person though, I don't live real close to the place.
You see on TV some more younger generations too, I dont consistently watch Project Runway but there are younger people on that show that make amazing outfits, and I do believe one of them has a shop down here in Houston too, was it Chloe Doa? sorry I dont consistently watch a lot of tv programs, so Im probably sounding very out of touch here...
I guess Im lucky Ive met some amazing older women that are more than happy to see a young face in their store or help out when you hit a snag, too bad they cant all be like that
