What is Crafthaus?
Find out more on how to connect with crafters from across the world. It is a paid social networking service of $35.00.
For me personally it allows me to connect with my community of crafters that I met at Penland School of Arts and Crafts as well as Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts. It has also allowed me to reconnect with people from SNAG.

Craft as an integral part of the fine art world
May 11, 2012
At what point does a craft transcend function, and enter into the world of fine art? The Philadelphia Museum of Art has recently opened a new exhibition, “Craft Spoken Here,” a collection of 40 contemporary works from 1960 to the present in glass, metal, ceramic, lacquer, paper and fiber, created by well-known and lesser-known international artists. We’ll talk about what is in these crafts our guest, the curator, ELISABETH AGRO, sees that rise to the high-profile, prestigious museum level. Our guest, Pittsburgh-based goldsmith BRIGITTE MARTIN, says this artistic distinction is a grey area, as techniques of craftspeople often overlap into fine art. She’s founded and curates an international social networking and online community for professional artists called crafthous. JESSIE HEMMONS, Philadelphia’s own “yarn bomber” will join us to describe how her craft has been taken from the streets onto the face of the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s Perelman building. Last year her stitching covered up the Rocky statue, in front of the musuem, with pink, hoody vest with the message, “Go See the Art” stated in black across the front.

It was so nice of Brigitte to remember me. I haven’t been on for at least 4 years. Now I’m trying to think of the next themed work I’m going to make next. I hope to return to conceptual work after such a long hiatus after being crime victimized.
Soon I will be making these license plates into one of a kind upcycled jewelry. Getting ready to go to south main creative to start selling in their shop hopefully.
I haven’t had a drill press since 2012. I finally bought a new one from Harbor Freight. I will name her Betty.
I bought her for $62.99 and saved $60 in the purchase at harbor freight. If you need a drill press I highly recommend you go and check out Harbor Freight soon.
Please pray for me that the kiln gets fixed soon. I am jonesing and have so much to make right now And I’m super excited to know I have potential things to do. But without the kiln broken I find I am at a loss.
My Arkansas license plate and vintage tin jewelry is now on sale at Freckled frog in Downtown Little Rock Arkansas.
Freckled Frog is located in the River Market District of Downtown Little Rock at 419 President Clinton Avenue.
