Looking for a new craft to take up? Don't have one but would like to start? This article is about some things to look for and take into account in some of the most popular crafts and hobbies people are doing.
First think about what interests you. For some it may be pictures and putting them together, design, or working with fabric or yarn. Look at local shops and online to see if their are classes. Classes are a good way to decided whether or not it's something you want to keep up with. Sometimes the cost involved is too much or you just don't have the time. Crafts are a great way to make friends. You can find a group just about anywhere for any craft.
If you've decided to take a class your local library or extension office is a good resource. Check out your local crafting stores as well. Michael's and Joann Fabrics both offer classes in cake decorating, scrap booking, etc.
For those on the go knitting and crochet are a great option. You can just throw the supplies in a bag and work on a project pretty much any where. It is also a great social activity. You can search for local groups that meet and join and make new friends. Think of it like an old quilting bee. It is a great craft for those old and young. For children Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts both are great for kids who want to meet other kids and learn new crafts.
If your thinking about taking up a craft or just want to learn something new ask yourself what your interested in and how do I go about learning how? Check out some classes and happy crafting!
