The traditional crafts in Greece are embroidery and crocheting. I have beautiful crocheted bedspreads my mother-in-law made and lots of embroidered doilies and runners. I think I am going to make pictures one of these days to show you!
The last few days I was busy making house blocks for the Greek QAL (Quilt Along) which is organized by the facebook page "και στην Έλλαδα αγαπάμε το πατσουωρκ" . My next blog will be about the houses.
I never thought that I would like teaching, but it is great to see the enthusiasm of the participants, whether they know already how to sew or have no idea about sewing. The older generation has learned basic crafts at school, the younger one, though, has no idea!!! I really think that it is a lack in education. Nowadays they teach drawing/painting and no other crafts whatsoever.
Crafting is so relaxing, so different from e.g. a day job, and the joy you get when you have the finished product is unbelievable!
