I'm sorry for that ignorant woman's comments.
Truthfully, aside from possibly DD3, none of my children would go within a ten foot radius of a craft show. My DD2 would rather watch paint dry.
Either way, she's classifying an entire gender based on one activity her daughter enjoys. As for her comment about never losing a girl, that's just comical. If she's going to make statements like that, it should be known that my mother lost me (any chance of connection to me) a LONG time ago. Being close to someone, including a parent, has everything to do with a person's own, individual personality, not gender.
Again, I'm sorry that her comments got to you but pay her no mind. She's clearly an idiot.
