Arts & Crafts Movement
Clearly, I'm a part of the [second] Arts & Crafts Revival. The day I bought my floor loom, there was another 25 year old buying one too. She said you can tell there's a second Arts & Crafts Revival happening because she's 25 and buying a loom. We high-fived.
I know someone whose bumper sticker says "Who's your farmer?" Well, to answer a set of similar questions, here are my artisans:
Beeswax and Honey
- Chuck Jones of Egill's Woodstuffs
- My husband
- John Dulaney
And, well, I'm my own seamstress.
