Needlecrafts provide so much more than they require. It is a way to relax and be creative. It is sublime in its repitition and focus. A twist, a turn, and repeat. Needlecraft gives us a feeling of accomplishment when we step back to look at what we created. Many of us appreciate the tradition of needlecrafts and fondly remembering those who taught the craft to us. We take pride and pleasure in the beauty of the craftsmanship, the simple, yet complex skills we acquire, and seeing our work progress. There is always more to learn and try.
One of the best parts? Giving away our creations to friends, family or charities. And in the giving, there is pleasure, too.
