Here are the stories from my craft nomad journeys.


In this digital world, the art of making things is becoming a thing of the past. Yet, there are still people and places where traditional crafts survive. We will explore the traditional crafts and meet the people who make them and ways traditional crafts are evolving and have evolved over time.
In many ways, craft is disappearing from modern life because of our life style of consumption. But there is also a quiet movement back to crafting. People are craving the very act of making things. Particularly in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom craft groups and even craft businesses are springing up in cities and small towns.

Today there are even conventions and major shows for fiber artists, teachers, and vendors.

A small spark of a memory can trigger a connection that points you to something deeper.
