Today’s crochet quote is from Margaret Wertheim of the Institute for Figuring and the Hyperbolic Crochet Reef Project. It comes from an interview that she did with Maria Elena Buszek in the book Extra/Ordinary: Craft and Contemporary Art. This is a really smart book about arts and crafts!
“I think it’s a great pity that, while craft is back in fashion and craft is clearly groovy again, in the preceding decades it was very passe. I know lots of women in their thirties and forties who didn’t grow up crafting and are learning it now, and I’m delighted to see the convergence of these practices.”
Curious – did you grow up crafting?
