When you think of craftwork, automatically your mind goes to the old stand-bys like knitting, crocheting, and needlework. Times may have changed, but these old, familiar favorites have endured over the generations. Now, due to all the stress in our lives, it’s strongly recommended that we find an outlet for our tension and anxieties. And experts claim that concentrating on stitches while knitting or crocheting can be very calming and just a few minutes a day can bring amazing results in our effort to bring some peace into our lives.
Not to mention the beautiful results you will accomplish when completing that blanket, hat, or sweater. To enhance that good feeling, donate some of your home-made articles to the needy or volunteer to teach your skill to those who never had the opportunity or time to learn a craft. And with craft shows across the country all through the year, you’ll meet people with like interests and pick up ideas for new and different projects while having fun.
