Modern craft - article from The Age

Nice article on modern women's craft and community from The Age newspaper in Melbourne - read it here.  A stitch through time, by Ginger Briggs.

I like the references to the pleasure of process rather than the requirement of perfection.

Interesting article. Wish she had promoted those jumpers for the Little Penguins though....places like Phillip Island Penguin Reserve really depend on people knitting them.
Liked the Brown Owls idea though!

Time I started talking to my girls (29, 21) more about what I do and if they would like to learn. I'm not a good teacher and they don't need to learn because "Mum will make it for me".
