I only really got into craft when I had finished school and university, and actually had free time. I started with jewellery making, and then diversified into sewing when I had a sewing machine for Christmas (a newer one than my Singer!) I then tried crochet to make wirework jewellery and I have also done metal work. I would love to do this more, but it is quite an expensive hobby and involves a lot of kit…. I did classes in the local college over a year.
I do wish that I would stay with a craft and persevere and get really good – but I enjoy trying things out too much and then swap around.
