I come from a "craftsy" Southern family. I started machine-sewing at age 8. My grandmother and aunts sewed, My mother made wall hangings, rugs, and crocheted, and I even married into a family where mostly all of the women knit, sew, and crochet. Most of the men in my husband's large family have a keen appreciation for hand-created textiles.
