Susan BerryRecently I visited a craft store to get inspired. While I was browsing I noticed beads, jewelry making aisles, scrapbooking aisles, but where were the needlework crafts?

My grandmother crocheted intricate lacy doilies and bureau scarfs. She made arm rest covers and lacy tablecloths.

My aunt made lovely needlepoint gifts for many of us in the family.

Another aunt used to hand sew aprons out of whimsical materials trimmed in lace and ruffles. She also made all her own curtains, equal to any that could be purchased at the finest stores.
