I just finished watching the first of a 5 part series on PBS.org called "Craft in America." The first part is called "Memory" and it tells the tale of furniture makers, basket weavers and blacksmiths who take pride in creating beautiful handmade objects, both functional and as art, that follow the tradition of their craft. I really enjoyed hearing their stories and seeing their beautiful work. As an extra bonus, while I was watching I was doing some crafting of my own, stitching up the hem to one of my skirts.
I hope to watch the rest of the series as well, where other types of crafts are explored as well. You can watch the series here.
