.

Today, we think of crafts as an enjoyable activity to do in our free time. Working with one's hands gives pleasure and joy, plus it has the added benefit of having something to show for time well spent. The crafts we do today were basic survival skills in the past. Even though spinning, weaving and sewing clothing and household goods for the family were necessary, as soon as some of this demand was lifted due to innovations in manufacturing, women began to incorporate their decorative skills into the work of these kinds of items.
