Excerpt Craft Corps (Chapter 3):
“VH: You’ve had a large presence on the Internet and specifically on message boards over the years. Have you noticed any change in the perception of what being crafty means during that time?
JH: Rob Walker, who wrote the book Buying In, has spent a lot of time talking to me and others in the DIY community. One of the things he pinpointed was that this doesn’t seem to be as much a craft movement as it is a work movement. Something I notice when people talk heavily about crafting is that they discuss as a way to become independently employed. There are more people doing it; there are more people noticing it.“
