Skills and Techniques
I started making many crafts back in the 50's on a treadle sewing machine that my grandmother gave me, she figured if I ran a needle in my finger I would stop peddling.
By the 60's I was making most of my own clothing, including formals, suites and coats. In the 70's was when family came alone and I made their clothing and also crafts to sell and help support us. I am always on the look out for something new and different, which lately seems as if the old is the new new. :)
