A textile manifesto of sorts

Welcome to my blog about making.  This is where I share my adventures in knitting, spinning, crochet and sewing.

I am passionate about textile hand-crafts.  The skills and practice of textile hand-crafts remind us where we have come from, before mass production and the costing of time.  They connect us with traditions across many cultures.

In making, we place value on the process, not simply the product. We create meaning when we make, enmeshing objects with memories and intentions.

In making, we become more self-reliant, more curious and more connected to our world – we become more than consumers.

Yeah!
