Your Craft-Q Quiz
Which craft is right for you.

Over the years I have tried many crafts only to realize midway through some large project that I hated it. I have now settled on a few favorites: cooking, collaging and knitting. It takes a while to find the right craft; itís a very personal thing. That said, there are different skills needed for different crafts and knowing this before you invest in equipment and supplies is a good thing. This quiz is designed to help you figure out which craft is right for you.

Warning: It's an old fashion-type of quiz. You'll need a pen and paper to record your results.
