Crochet Quote: An invulnerable art

Today’s crochet quote touches on some of the history of crochet. It comes from A Treasury of Crochet Patterns by Liz Blackwell, an early 1970’s crochet book that I found while browsing through the Santa Monica library during my vacation.

“Crochet has had more ups and downs than any other known form of handwork and has even been considered a lost art during many periods of time. But the craft has proved invulnerable and has always survived, even after long periods of almost complete stagnation.”

Can you think of other common crafts that have been “lost” and revived like crochet?
