Craft Manifesto

I submitted a proposal to talk at a local conference. It wasn't selected but since I'd already spent far more time editing it than I do for most blog posts, I decided to share it here. It has been edited from a pitch to a "manifesto" and you can read the whole thing here.

Keep in mind, I'm not a professional artist. I work with them, they're "my people," but I can't speak on their behalf. My professional background is in business and I'm addressing the issue as I see it from an entrepreneurial point of view.

I'm hoping that artists and people who buy crafts will share their opinions too! I closed comments on this post. If you have feedback, please leave it on the Manifesto page so we can have a continuing conversation.
