Excerpt from Craft Corps (Chapter 27):

VH: Something I haven’t really focused on much in this book, but would like to, concerns family as community. You nurture the crafty aspect of that on your blog and your book, The Creative Family. What does family as community mean to you, and how can crafting together as a family strengthen that union?

AS: Crafting is definitely a foundation of our family and how we spend time together. WHen you create a space in which everybody is able to create together–in a way that is not overly structured, so that it’s very open–I believe our true selves shine. It’s not a task or a job; it’s just who we are. It allows us to see each other in a unique way. Crafting together is pretty amazing because it nurtures our relationships.”
