This morning on twitter, someone posted a link to this post:

http://askharriete.typepad.com/ask_harriete/2012/09/the-white-tents-credibility-context-does-matter.html

(I haven’t had time to read them, but there’s a whole string of posts after that, on the same theme of craft shows and trends…)

In the comments section, James Binnon mentions this article:

It’s a little hard to read online, so I tracked it down in other forms. It’s available (a related version) on Lulu.com, here:

or as an iBook on iTunes

Anyway, fascinating reading about the big changes going on in the crafts movement and I thought you’d all be interested.
