Re: Is The Craft Industry an Industry Divided?

Interesting to identify the chasm between (pre-indie?) craft and indie craft as the web. I agree but take it a step further. I see the difference as method (which includes the web), style, and a less structured artistic and creative impulse.

I have a friend who said to me, "Oh, you're not the chintz and chickens crafter." Sums it up to some degree. I do not mean to knock anyone who makes things (nor do I want to knock chintz and chickens!)--but there is a difference. We have, in common, making things, and I think it's good to focus on common ground. But the two groups also have distinct communities.

Re: The Tote-ally Crafty Bag Challenge

Love the tote challenge and the wonderful bags that have been entered. I'm contemplating entering, and was wondering if the tote can have purse-like handles? It's voluminous, like a typical tote, but it's round and instead of straps, I have a different kind of handle on it... does it still qualify as a tote? (I don't mean to make it an existential issue--what is a tote)...

Thanks for any clarification.
