I simply don't understand why these talented people do not offer classes to teach others. My grandmother was incredible gifted in many areas and taught me several things when I was a child. However, that has been over thirty years ago and I have forgotten almost everything. Now that I'm older I would very much like to relearn how to sew, knit, crochet, and embroider. Since the internet is not a viable option for me, I have no idea where I could go to relearn these wonderful skills that are practically a lost art.
