    Missing my arts & crafts
    paininnm posted:

    I have arthritis real bad in my hands, (along with other areas),. I used to quilt and crochet. I can't crochet anymore because of the twisting and turning my wrists and hands have to do. Can anyone think of other crafts for people with arthritic hands?

    Thank you. I appreciate any ideas.

    I have arthritis also. My hands and wrists hurt at times. One finger on my left hand hurts and is very stiff. I love to do crafts but haven't crocheted much either lately. I do a lot of plastic canvas projects and I am thinking about a sock loom. I don't know if this helps you...I may not hurt as badly as you do. I wish you luck.
