"When you are working, there’s a communion between the object and the material. Then it transcends into something much greater when someone likes it, and you’re paid ten fold…" ~ Sam Maloof, Wood worker




"Craft is all around us, giving pleasure as well as serving a function. It is inspirational as well as useful. It is the best representation of who we are as a culture. Craft is democratic -- broad enough to accommodate anyone who makes something or appreciates the handmade. In short, craft is us."

Season Five of Craft in America is upon us!  "Forge" will air on Friday, October 25th (check local listings), followed by "Holiday" in December and "Industry" in the spring.  If you have not had the opportunity to view the previous episodes, you can stream them all online.  Check out the Season 5 Preview below - and if it does not come through via e-mail, please go directly to my blog.


Such a wonderful opportunity to continue to learn about, and appreciate all that goes into the wonderful things that are hand-crafted in our country!
