Retirement can be a great opportunity to do all those things you never had the time , energy or patience to do . It's the perfect opportunity to get back to all those hobbies you had when you were a teen , and get new ones you came across but never had the time to dedicate in order to learn them.
The other day one of my sweetest facebook friends left a comment to one of my posts, I shared the photo you see here below of the studio all prepared for the ladies to come in for a wire crochet workshop.
Nelida's comment gave me a whole different angle to what I do, in my perception I was sharing my wire crochet know how with a community of crafters, with no special attention to what age group they belong to. I did notice it appealed most to women over 35, but I thought it was simply that the more mature ladies had the time to write me, I never realized the great advantages it has for crafty retirees.
In addition to the satisfaction that crafting brings, I have written in the past about what a great exercise for the brain is learning a new craft that occupies the 2 hands. Health benefits are great by themselves but I don't believe one can dive into a new hobby such as wire crochet without enjoying it , just like we all want to eat healthy , but if it’s not tasty , it’s never going to last..
In this case I can assure you , that although there is a learning curve to wire crochet, once you get the hang of it , it’s like riding a bicycle , it’s yours forever. You will be able to make a lot of appreciated gifts for your daughters , daughters in law , friends and even your grand daughters.
I would even dare say they might ask you to teach them so they can show off themselves they can crochet with wire.
