Sitting at the lunch table at work (the place I go to be paid so that I can afford other things), I was chatting with someone who I had suggested Craftsy to. She was addicted, and made a small quilt in a couple of hours (it is apparently love, and I am not sure her husband is going to ever talk to me now).
Showing off the work she had done (a lovely disappearing nine patch), there was a comment from across the table about mothballs, doilies and old women.
I have never really come across attitudes like that.
So I told him about my spinning wheel.
