Thinking About The Future of Needle Arts

Whether you call the things we do with string, Needle CRAFTS or Needle ARTS, does not matter.

Those of us who love this business often think about the future in a world being warped by interesting changes.

As often happens, sometimes people I like can say it so much better than I.

Beth Mauro recently posted in her B.Line blog an article that is NOT really about Wal-Mart’s recent decision, except as a backdrop to a much larger issue:

Without the “grandmothers” how are we to ensure that we can keep the traditions alive to be enjoyed by future generations.

Like Beth, I believe the answer can be found in our independent retailers. The question is, what can we do to get the planning underway at all points in the industry, from Manufacturers and Designer to Retailer and of course, exiting the consumers to continue to craft.
