Crafting is a hobby that never dies. It only grows in cycles and waves. It’s one of the few hobbies that becomes more popular in times of depression. With the internet being more and more accessible to us and Pinterest continuing to be a phenomenon, it makes sense that crafting is once again seeing an upswing.
Craft Activism by Joan Tapper and Gale Zucker talks about exactly this and teach you how you can do more to get involved in your local crafting community. If you ever felt like you were the only one in your town that knit, sewed, or crocheted, you will quickly see that that’s not true and learn how to connect with these other crafters. Craft Activism is interested in growing the craft movement and making it an even bigger part of our lives.
Within its pages you’ll learn how to organize community crafting events, connect with other crafters, craft with the environment in mind, host an online craft exchange, and even how to create yarn graffiti. There are tips from life long crafters who have turned their hobbies into full-time careers.
Along with advise and resources for crafters, like suggested reading and websites, there are also 17 fun projects for you to try yourself! And there’s nothing that a crafter likes to do more than craft, right?
Craft Activism will really make you think of crafting as a community in ways you never thought of it before.
