One of the greatest gifts that crafting has given me is community. Because of craft, I share a common bond with people all over the world–people of different backgrounds, religions, philosophies and creeds. People who I likely would’ve never met, spoken to or shared with, had it not been for our common bond as creative beings. People like you!
I’ve been fortunate enough to make a career out of crafting and equally as lucky to have met (either virtually or in person) thousands of fellow crafters because of it.
Whether it was the inclusion of “Knitsters” on TV’s “Knitty Gritty”, the collaboration with both unknown and veteran designers for several of my books, the founding of “Stitch N’ Bitch” groups or simply corresponding via my blog, Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, and Ravelry, staying connected with people (hobbiest or professional) who’re truly passionate about their craft inspires me on a daily basis. This community is something I value greatly and as a voice in the creative industry feel a responsibility to help nurture for you other crafty compadres out there. Enter Craft Corps.
