Passing Along Your Hand Skills

(Maddy Lou)

Dottie directed me to a wonderful post about the importance of passing along our hand sewing and other skills. Giving the Gift of Hand Skills at Craft Nectar (by Weeks Ringle of Fun Quilts) suggests a new tradition of sharing a hand skill with a child or young adult. Dottie also mentioned this as a possible New Year’s resolution. Weeks provides examples of how surgeons would benefit from improved fine motor skills, and that texting and using a computer mouse are not helping to develop these skills. I recommend a quick visit to Weeks’ blog to read the short article.

Who are you passing your skills to?
