Crafts are cool! September 28, 2006

Recent books such as Stitch and Bitch Nation and The crafty diva’s D.I.Y. stylebook highlight the surprising renaissance in crafts such as knitting, crocheting, and decoupage among young people.

Events like this weekend’s Crafty Bastards exhibition and sale in Washington, D.C. celebrate these new-fashioned creative crafters, showcasing such items as a lamp made of cocktail umbrellas, knitted pirate-themed change purses, and plush toys made to resemble things like telephones.

Borrow some of this buzz with a hip display of craft books at your library. You could even accessorize with a basket of arts and craft supplies.
