International Women's History Day is today, Thursday, March 8. Be inspired by this year's theme, which is "Women's Education – Women's Empowerment".
Netgallery is doing their part with this just released, new video interview with STC Craft authors Joelle Hoverson, Melanie Falick, and Andrea Berman Price about crafting and women's empowerment. Please watch it below:
I've asked myself this question-- "What is the special connection between womanhood and crafts?"
For me the special connection between womanhood and crafts is being a homemaker. Part of being a homemaker is my ability to craft items for my home. If you walk into my home, you will see items that I have made in every room in the house. You will see tablerunners, placemats, coasters, hotpads, blankets and a lot more.
I believe it's important to start children young with crafting and to keep them interested. Many think it's a dying art, but it is far from it.
Netgallery is graciously offering one of my readers who comment on this post an ebook edition of Michelle Edwards's incredible A Knitter's Home Companion.
To enter, just answer this question in the comment section: "How does knitting and crafting empower you?"
