sticks, beads and strings
make wonderful, beautiful things

Amazingly, Gaspingly, Heartbreakingly Beautiful

I received a book Tuesday that I simply must tell you about. Now, it’s a thick book, so obviously, I have not had time to linger over every word, but I have spent some time looking at the pictures and read a few snippets, and Craft in America is just stunning. Stunning.

Craft in American book jacket

There are a variety of crafts covered in this books, and the raw materials include fiber, wood, clay, stone, sand and more. If you can use it make something beautiful, then someone has, and the technique is in here. Craft in America was published as a companion to the PBS series of the same name, but it is an excellent stand-alone piece as well. And I know this, because i didn’t even know there was such a show, LOL!

Truly, buy it, check it out from the library, whatever, but do give this book a look. I promise that if you are a serious crafter, in any medium, it will stir your soul.
