What's The Use Of Crafting?
An embroidery set I bought in Germany.
Women nowadays are often taught that crafting is basically a waste of time (as opposed to the fine arts of facebooking, twittering, and other forms of attention-wh*ring online) and something for old women. A friend was ashamed once that a repairman came and saw her through the window engaged in (gasp) crocheting. Yet, doing things with your hands, like knitting or cross-stitching (or drawing or playing a musical instrument) is good for your nerves. It makes you more relaxed and helps you fight depression and even dementia.
Don't believe me? Here is what science says:

I can testify to the fact that I recently cured a splitting headache by just engaging in cross-stitching:)
