There are so many crafts out there to be tried and tested. Gosh, I was chatting to some ladies at the monthly meeting we have in a nearby village. Most of them seem to have been old for most of my lifetime, and Im no spring chicken now. However, they do have a fantastic range of abilities and talents between them. One particular octagenarian has just completed an tailoring course – taken her two years at a local art department. This dear lady was so full of enthusiasm for her newly and much desired talents, and she was telling us all about a textile warehouse that she has access to. It sounded so interesting and exciting I very nearly signed up for a course myself!
My chum was regaling us with news of all the modern textiles available today – suits do not just have to be serge! Colours, thread counts, colours, I learnt more over that afternoon tea than your could imagine.
