CD: If I had to say it in one word, it would be growth. When I was first doing my craftg shows in the early 60’s, my main materials were milk cartons, bleach bottles, egg cartons, etc. This was not just by choice, but necessity. There were only two craft stores in all of Detroit that I knew of, and their staples were things like Styrofoam balls, chenille stems, bump chenille, and sequins–lots of sequins. The incredible growth in the amount of tools and materials available has made it possible for almost anyone who has the desire to craft to make things that are truly items to be proud of. It used to be that if folks thought they were not artistic, they couldn’t craft. That’s not the case anymore.“
