For any Twin Cities Craftsters who may have missed it, City Pages' cover story this week was all about us enigmatic "new domestics." The very cool shop Crafty Planet was prominently featured, with several quotes from its co-owner, Trish, and her friends and clients.

If you didn't catch it, here's the link:

Only a brief mention of Craftster, but plenty of props to Bust and a couple other forums.

I snatched the article up right away and as I am an anthropology student up north I found it particularly interesting.  I am doing field work this summer on the emergence of this "groupd" and how people join and identify with it.  Condsidering myself part of the movement I find it super facinating to learn about it.  Does anyone else have any thoughts on this subject?

Gotta say, anarchy and Apron Strings was the first thing that I saw when I walked into Matt's Bar (home of the infamous Jucy Lucy) I devoured the article as fast as my burger. But I found it very funny that the author was so surprised that neo-feminists would want to busy them selves w/ crafts. maybe that just because I've been crafting ever since I was 4. And I cant wait to check out Crafty Planet!

I haven't looked myself, but the Twin Cities Stitch N Bitch yahoo forum was apparently abuzz with the controversy over the article. It's cool to see Trish and Crafty Planet and the other awesome crafters on the FRONT PAGE though!!!

I agree it was pretty exciting to see those ladies on the front page.

I didn't realize there was a whirlwind of controversy over the article... What's the controversy? Personally I was surprised (maybe even a bit annoyed) by how shocked the author sounded in the opening paragraphs about the currently popularity of knitting and other crafting... where has she been the past two years? The article didn't seem very timely to me. Other than that, I felt it was well done, however.
