Excerpt from Craft Corps (Chapter 15):
“VH: What’s your first craft-related memory?
GJ: My first craft-related memory comes from my mother. She was a schoolteacher and somehow accumulated the world’s greatest craft collection in old-fashioned ’60’s pantyhose boxes. I would have to say our house had a hundred flat pantyhose boxes with diligently sorted craft materials: pompoms, pipe cleaners, cut pieces of paper, yarn, spools from old thread. Mu mother accumulated all these things, and then sorted them carefully; we kids, you know, completely ravished them over the course of childhood and left them a decimated pile.
VH: They were completely made available, and you had free reign?
GJ: Yes, absolutely. So, I’ve got to give it up to my mother for enabling that level of creativity and letting us be messy, fun, crafty kids growing up. That is easily a debt that I owe, and will pass on to my own kids when they come along.”
