There are few things in life that are truly important, and they are all completely intangible- things like family and friendship, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t a couple things that I hope people keep making in the future.
I love old fashioned wooden toys. Unfortunately you don’t see them much anymore. They are being replaced with plastic and technology. I would love to see people buying more of these simple toys. Yes, we have to kill trees to make them, but those trees can be replanted, and the plastic ones that we’ve been replacing them with will live in landfills for millennia. Wouldn’t it be more green to go back to these simple toys? …and in my opinion, way more fun.
Even though I’ve only been making my own quilts for the last few years, quilts have always been an important part of my life. They were something that was always around, and something that could be passed down from loved ones. I love the process of the craft, and how personal quilts can become. There is nothing more meaningful to me than to be able to give a homemade quilt to someone to help commemorate a special occasion.
What do you hope people are still making in the future?
