“There's a whole generation of people who don't know how to do anything….They don't know how to embroider, they don't know how to sew on a button, they don't how to take up a hem, they don't know how to measure a hat. They don't know how to set in a collar, they don't know how to make the back of a shirt, they don't know how to gather a ruffle. They don't know how to knit, they don't know how to crochet, they don't know how to make lace with a little tatty tool.”
