"Contemporary Crafts is a hands-on course designed to give students opportunities to develop skills in a variety of craft techniques. The course delves into the history of each craft and its application to today’s society. There are numerous connections to the core academic areas. Each student will create an individual information based portfolio. The class will design a business based on a craft and market their product. Examples of the skills that may be developed include macramé, decoupage, charted designs, basketry, weaving, quilting, knitting, crocheting, paper craft, bookbinding, and stamping."
"This course explores hand sewing and craft techniques. The student will make a sample project supplied by the teacher. This allows the student to learn a hand craft such as knitting, crocheting, counted cross stitch, and/or embroidery. Students will be required to purchase some additional materials. As the student’s ability increases, each project will become more challenging. Because this class is taught according to each individual student’s skill level, this course may be repeated to increase skill level."

Lee, thank you so much for sending me the link for this article today. (The Gold Club is worth it's weight in gold!) The article makes me feel better about giving my daughter credit for the hours and hours and HOURS she has spent crocheting over the past few years. She loves it, and I love how homeschooling allows one of her passions to counted for high school credit. Thanks again for everything! :-)
What a sweet encouragement it will be for Lee to read this!
