I'm twenty two and just recently taught myself how to hand-sew. I found out in my high school home ec class that sewing machines and I don't get along, and have never had any urge to use one ever again. I've always loved stuffed animals though and been jealous of my moms ability to make beautiful cross-stitch pictures (I hate counting all the teeny holes). When I picked up a book on sock doll making, I was hooked. I'm really just beginning, but I'm enjoying it more and more, and I'm just starting in on embroidering, especially the free-style/doodle-stitch kind.
