As a Waldorf Handwork teacher here in Vermont for many years, I enjoyed helping young people see that they can knit, crochet, felt and sew. Teaching sewing to women in a local prison, I have seen the tremendous healing power of someone learning she can sew an “outa here bag” for her to have upon her release from prison.
