Do you do arts and crafts with your kids, or have arts and crafts as a hobby ?

How many of you enjoy arts and crafts as a past time ?
It seems that some of the more “old fashioned” crafts have been relegated to the older generation. Can you knit ? Can you do needlepoint ?

    I used to do art and craft with my boys, but now they’re 22 and 24 they don’t seem interested :-(
    I work in a school and craft is my speciality. At the moment, I’m making bags with yr 3/4 children, cards with ys 2/3 children and art for the urdd (that’s a Welsh thing) with yr 5/6
    At home, I knit and do needlepoint, sew and make cards.

    My children are grown so I craft with my grandaughters. I have taught my daughters how to sew, knit, crochet, X-stitch, paint, embroider, scrapbook, etc……. Now, I’m teaching the younger ones!
    I love crafting and enjoy teaching others how to craft.

    We are crafty at our house….and we work with the children we babysit to do crafts also. Then we work with crafts in VBS for our church. I sew, crochet, bead and even dabble in computer crafting. Lately, I have loved making cards with stuff around the house….ribbon, buttons, flowers etc.

    Yes I can knit, crochet, quilt, patchwork, bead, cross stitch, embroider, tapestry, have a go at a lot of things. Try to pass on my skills to children either at sunday school, of primary schools and to the local children in the neighbourhood. used to run a craft club at my old church.
    My son who is now 20 has had a go at a lot of crafts and is now wanting to have a go at making a quilt and is quite happy to sew on his own buttons! He has inspired me a number of times to try something new!
    It is upto the older generation to pass on their skills so that they are not lost.

    Yes, I do (13 & 18 yr old daughters), and I look forward to when my new-born grandson can hang out with Grandpa on the model railroad !!

    The girls have gotten into stained-glass, and love to do cross-stitch with their Mom. PLUS they enjoy working with DAD on the railroad or out in the shop building furniture.

    The eldest daughter BUILT a captains-bed for herself and her sister… AND built a crib for her son.

    We’ve also done some shearing, yarn-spinning, and felting from our goats (California). We have chickens and pigs in the Philippines, and the youngest has started doing “Russian” style dyed-eggs.
