The NY Times on Craft & the Internet

This past weekend, the New York Times Magazine published an extensive piece about craft and the Internet titled Handmade 2.0.

Covering the phenomena of Etsy as proof positive that high technology is fostering a resurgence of traditionally low-tech practices, the piece covers some serious ground.

It is thrilling to see craft receive attention from such a widely-read mainstream publication. Anyone who thinks craft is musty and old-fashioned, or that craft is going nowhere, really needs to get online!

Ok, back to holiday shopping!
