When Demelza moved to a new city, she abandoned her old hobby & kept her former involvement in it a secret, although there was nothimg shameful about it. How come??

Was the new city in the same country as the old one?
Is it relevant what country either city is in?
Is it relevant what the hobby is? is it normally done outdoors? Indoors? Does it involve any equipment? expensive equipment? computers?
Is it relevant why she moved to a different city?
Is her job relevant? Her age?

Was it related to sports? crafts? arts? literature? socializing? science? charity? just a way to spend free time?

It was not shameful, but was it unpopular? prohibited? socially unacceptable? in the new city. Or was it so popular that she though her skill level was not adequate to compete with locals?

Could she continue if she wanted to?

Is it important that she moved from city to city, or will "from an old place to a new one" work as well?

Demelza = human? adult? female?

Was she worried that...

...someone might make a particular inference about her because of the hobby? about her personality? beliefs? skills? wealth? social status?
...someone might mistake participating in the hobby for something else?
...she would be in danger if she participated in the hobby?

Were the old city and the new city different in any significant way? If so, was that way related to...

...geography?
...climate?
...size?
...demographics?
...local laws and regulations?
...crime?
...If the two cities were in different countries, laws and regulations at the country level?

Would she be in danger of...

...physical harm?
...monetary loss? loss of property?
...identity theft?
...being arrested?
...being fired from her job?

Would she be in danger if she participated in the hobby because...

...she could become the victim of a crime?
...in participating in the hobby, she would be committing a crime?
...in participating in the hobby, she could do something that would make it appear she was committing a crime?
...an accident could occur while she was participating in the hobby?
...someone else might expect her to do something that she can't actually do?
...someone else might feel in danger from her, and harm her in self-defense?

You said that the hobby was related to arts and crafts. Does it entail producing a finished product from raw materials? (e.g. producing a painting from a canvas and paint.)
...Are the raw materials dangerous? illegal? something undesirable to have?
...Are the finished products dangerous? illegal? something undesirable to have?
...Are the tools and equipment needed dangerous? illegal? something undesirable to have?
...Does it matter what she does with the finished products after producing them? Does she sell them? Put them on display? In a public place?

You said that it matters that the place she moved from and the place he moved to were cities and that just "from one place to another" wouldn't do, but that there were no significant differences between the two cities. Correct? Would the puzzle work is she moved...

...from a rural area to a rural area?
...from a rural area to a city?
...from a city to a rural area?

If the answer to any of the above is "no", the relevant difference between cities and rural areas:

...geography?
...climate?
...size?
...demographics?
...local laws and regulations?
...crime?

Would others think she would have committed murder because of something they would...

,,,see?
...hear?
...smell?
...taste?
...touch?

Would others thing she would have committed murder by observing...

...the raw materials?
...the finished products?
...the tools and equipment?
...her in the process of doing it?

Is witchcraft ( in any of it's reincarnations ) relevant? healing? assisted suicide? carving of human bones?

Would there be direct evidence of murder? indirect evidence? "missing people"?

How old is she?

not sure if it was asked.. is time period critical? would the story work today?
If she moved to New York City would the puzzle work?
does she use a pottery wheel?
just to clarify previous questions:
could she practice her hobby alone?
did it require other people?
could someone looking through her window as she made her craft mistake her for murdering a person?
could someone looking through her window as she made her craft mistake her for murdering a person?
are there any other people relevant in her hobby?
any relevant culture?

****************** SPOILER *****************
When Demelza moved to a new city, she was planning to murder someone there. So she stopped exhibiting her pottery, because she didn't want people to know she had a kiln...since she was planning to creamte her victim there. Thanks for solving it & please check out my new puzzle at the bottom of the page
