I learned to knit and crochet, and even sew a simple skirt, in school, in the fifties. Then in the sixties and early seventies there was new interest in crocheting, macrame, and lots of other crafts, and now, for the third time in my life, there is a revival in arts & crafts, and all kinds of needle art, multi media stuff, etc., and I feel right at home again. Even know men who knit and crochet, wow! Glad to have found this forum of fellow creative souls! So hello to all.

Welcome and I reallay think you will enjoy this website. I visited your area about 10 years ago and was quite a culture shock from So. Indiana. Would love to visit again some day and also to see Northern Ca. Enjoy. Judy

One of my best friends is originally from Indiana, now in Norcal, and he likes it here a lot better he says. We just heard on the news that in Indiana, people are now prosecuted and get jail time for not paying bills like car payments, house payments, when they have lost their jobs - sort of like in Charles Dickens: debtor prisons... wow, talk about culture shock eh? And hello to you and all the rest who welcomed me. You sound like a bunch of kind people!

I've not heard that, but the Indiana Governor, Mitch Daniels, is trying to get public school funds for private schools. Please don't vote this man for president! He is all about eliminating jobs and that is a major problem in this country. Had a bit of snow here todday. Judy

Just google Indiana debtors prisons:

But sorry I even said it. I saw Indiana, remembered my friend talking about this... knee jerk reaction and I fear not on topic and out of place. Indiana is not the only state doing this. So: my bad. Apologies. Can we start over? 8-}
