Excerpt from Craft Corps (Chapter 1):
“VH: Sewing, as a trend, experienced a long dry spell in popularity. Although the overflowing fabric stores that were around when I was a kid are now few and far between, sewing itself, is experiencing a resurgence. What’s different, do you think, about this wave of stitchers from the last?
AB: It’s interesting, and I really can’t quantify this, but I don’t think the spirit behind crafting is different at all. I think maybe the intensity and passion might be turned up a few notches. I think about what women’s lives might have been like a long time ago. The world is a very different place now. A lot of us raising our families have a passion for craft and might even want to start a business. That’s a lot to balance. In almost every household, both partners have work. When I was growing up, my mom and grandmother didn’t work, and women crafted for the joy and pleasure of it, but but wasn’t a stolen moment. Now, I think women and men who craft have even more passion for it, because it’s their sole outlet; it’s their stress reliever. It adds so much meaning to life and helps them define it. Crafting is not just a pastime, it’s soul food.”
