My mother taught me to crochet at age 7. Then I learned how to sew and knit in Girl Scouts at age 9. In high school I started making many of my clothes. When I started med school at age 25 I was sorry that I wouldn't have time to create with fiber for many years. But I chose a specialty with a 40 hour week, so I am back crafting again.
