Crochet Quote: Women and art

Today’s crochet quote comes from Yanina Schenkel, an amigurumi artist who was recently interviewed by Inside Crochet.

“I think women don’t necessarily identify crocheting or embroidery with the old role of the housewife and therefore it is instead seen as another accessible medium through which designers and artists can express themselves.”

Do you agree that crochet has come to be seen as more art and self-expression than domestic craft in recent years?
