My grandmother taught me to sew forty years ago. I now knit, spin, sew, quilt, write, and am taking a weaving class. I have also taken up new interests thanks to Craftsy. I am now learning water color painting and mixed media as well as beefing up my photography skills. As a retired chef I did not expect to buy any of the cooking classes but have done so and learned some new techniques.
