While handicrafts have become somewhat unpopular in the recent past, today you can find a lot in various do-it-yourself markets that were still popular in the XNUMXs and XNUMXs and could also be learned in courses at adult education centers .

Whether it was pottery, patchwork, quilting, knitting, embroidery, lace making, weaving, painting or macramé, these hobbies are experiencing a renaissance. They stimulate the imagination and challenge the skill.

But not only the self-made end product is a pleasure, but also the production of these individual pieces is a pleasure. You can realize your own ideas or be inspired by handicraft newspapers.

Or just rework something that you particularly like. Where everyone can work according to their skills and preferences. If you then sit together in a happy group, you can also help each other or exchange ideas.

You won't get bored!

In the past there was the spinning room, where women met and the spinning wheels were purring with stories and gossip. Many fairy tales and legends were passed on in this way, which would perhaps have been forgotten without the spinning rooms. The social gathering was also cultivated and the village community strengthened with it.

The needles clattered eagerly in knitting circles and fine filet crochet was made in crochet circles. So what speaks against reviving this meaningful and productive conversation?

Not just sitting in front of the TV, but meeting like-minded people and creating something lasting together and thus making yourself or others happy.

Just ask around who is interested. Surely there will be some who want to participate. In addition, handicrafts are not at all antiquated.

Even on the Internet you can find a lot of suggestions and instructions for modern, sensible and beautiful things, the production of which is explained in detail. Just give it a try!

PS: You will find suitable utensils at the Do it yourself fair on October 27.10th in the Sulzbach auditorium.
