So I get this month’s issue of American Craft, just about tear off their new half page cover and remember that I need to keep it on as it is part of their new makeover. I’m thinking “Ho Hum …lipstick on a pig”. (OK, that was a bit harsh.)
But I find myself surprised. I find myself wondering if someone at the American Craft Council gets it. I find myself staring at a book review about knitting.
Why is that important?
There has been a new, alternative, craft movement in the US, at least, for a number of years, that has captured the imagination of a whole new generation of young (and old) minds. Knitting (note: not “fiber arts”) has been one of its vanguards.
I think we are seeing the entry of this new, alternative, craft into the mainstream craft world. Should be interesting.
