Name: Diana Rupp
Gig(s):Owner of Make Workshop in NYC
Excerpt from Craft Corps (Chapter 20):
“VH: Do people from all over the country come to Make Workshop?
DR: Actually, from all over the world. I’ve had a lot of Australians lately–they’re awesome. A lot of teachers come from there and from Canada. Then, I get a lot of travelers and tourists coming through New York who decide to take a class.
VH: I’m always curious to know if craft is viewed differently by people around the world or around the country. For instance, is it seen differently by people in the Midwest than it is nu people on the coasts? Is it defined differently in Australia than it is in the United Kingdom?
DR: I think so. I was dating a guy who lived in Iowa. In his tiny town of 10,000 people, there were multiple fabric stores and a sewing machine dealership. From my perspective doing a book tour, in certain areas, craft is still something that’s handed down to you from your family. I think that’s much more true in the Midwest than it is here (NYC). In many countries kids learn how to knit as part of the school curriculum. In Europe, that practice is a little more present. I also think there are certain periods in people’s lives when they craft more, like for weddings or when someone’s having a baby.”

I love her interview answer. I wish knitting was taught in school here in the U.S. I’ve learned so much from knitting and sewing. It really helps you with problem solving and seeing the big picture. And the book looks so helpful!
