I am delighted by all of the people who responded to the post that anyone
attempting to learn fine binding after some unidentifiable (but young) age
would be unable to do so because they would lack the necessary physical
skills! I can think of many other ways these skills could be acquired:
knitting, crocheting, needlework of all kinds, including hand sewing, to name
but a few!

Andres Segovia taught himself to play the guitar (surely requiring a SERIOUS
level of finger dexterity) in his forties.
