Hi-- New Here

Post  michal on Tue Jun 01, 2010 9:15 pm

Hi Y'all,

This is an awesome site someone has created! I just stumbled upon it while browsing for information about farming and such...

Anyway... I like to crochet! I write my own patterns, and create different designs like squares, diamonds, even butterflies (!) by "carrying" multiple strands at once. That way I never have to use scissors and break off to change colors. It's pretty cool. I like it so much that I almost can't crochet using just one strand anymore!

Currently I'm working on an area rug for the new house we're going to be moving into-- it has very light carpeting, and so I need to have an area rug down to help keep the carpet clean-- because we have dogs, and well, mud happens.

It certainly sounds as if you have created a very unique technique! Perhaps you would like to upload some pictures and give others tips on how you do it.

HI Ya'll from Mississippi

Post  historygurl on Thu Oct 16, 2014 6:58 pm

I am so happy to have found this site and look forward to sharing my ideas for handmade crafts in the near future. I recently finished graduate school in Early American History in the field of material culture, followed by an internship at Jamestown, VA, where i worked as an interpreter at Jamestown Settlement. I fancy myself as well-informed about many of the  homesteading necessities practiced by early pioneer settlers and enjoy recreating these artisan works to trade at fairs and venues in support of keeping these skilled arts alive. I do hand-quilting and crafting, early basic clothing construction, early American cooking/baking, and am presently learning lye soap and candle-making. I love to share my knowledge of the history of these skilled arts, and hope to post some videos soon of projects I have finished, along with instructional tools for those interested in completing their own projects. See you soon!

So glad you dropped by and found us. This forum is slightly neglected as there as just not enough hours in a day, or lifetimes to do the things I need to do! Embarassed

So please feel free to contribute in any way you can!

Regards
Kathryn
