I started sewing when I was a toddler on one of those drilled out boards where you use a shoelace and sew the outline of a fish or a duck. Once I could wield scissors I started sewing dresses for my dolls.
I added crochet when I was 8, cross stitching when I was 10, beading at 11, and knitting at 16. And I started binding books in college.
