Many Country Crafts and Career Opportunities

Homesteaders depended on country crafts and skills for comfort and gratification.

Handicrafts were one time part of every day living.  People thought no more of making candles then we do today in turning on the television.  In colonial days, crafts were the survival skills of average men and women.

Today, many people are beginning to go back to the "good old days" for fun, for economy reasons, but most of all for the feeling of independence that comes when we make do for ourselves.  

My mother has been quilting for 40 years and still does today.  

All her children and grandchildren and many friends sleep with the comfort of her homemade quilts.
