Grannies are fabulous, aren't they? With all that experience in life and bringing up babies, what would we do without them as mothers?

As well as being wonderfully cuddly and great babysitters, they're also invaluable for passing on all those home-making skills that seem to be dying out among modern mums these days.

if you don't have a granny and the recession has given you the urge to learn how to crochet, knit or quilt to save your pennies. Or you've simply always wanted to turn your hand to these clever crafts and just haven't had anyone to teach you, there are now three wondeful virtual grannies who can help.

Meet the Persil Non Bio and Comfort Pure Grannies. They've produced three videos to pass on their valuable crafting skils to new mothers. Learn how to crochet with granny Joan (above). If you've always wanted to master knitting, discover how to cast on and more with granny Nicky. Then there's granny Barbara, ready to pass on her expertise in quilting.
