Do you like to learn about the past? Have you ever wondered how your grandmother crocheted that scarf for you or embroidered the pillowcase? Have you looked at a quilt on your grandmothers bed and wondered how it was made? If you said yes to any of these questions, then this project is for you. Heritage Arts includes the practical skills passed down from proceeding generations that were developed to provide basic family needs, such as apparel, home furnishings, or decorations. The Heritage Arts project is broken down into these project areas: Crochet, Knitting, Needle Arts (Decorative Stitching), Quilting, Miscellaneous Fiber (Spinning, Weaving, Rug making, Macrame, etc.) and Miscellaneous Non-Fiber (Native American beading, silver smithing, Ukrainian eggs, paper, scrolling , wood carving, etc.). Along with learning how to master these techniques, you will also investigate the history of the project you have chosen and include the study in your e-record.
