City of Craft 2007, Toronto, Ontario!

"Something unanticipated was happening. Our making was becoming more important than the products of our craft. Artists who created for a living would come and just play, without worrying about whether or not what they made would sell. People who didn't think of themselves as artists could give themselves permission to try something that intimidated them, because it didn't matter if what they made turned out like the picture. Their creative impulse would still be valued." Callie Janoff, Handmade Nation: The Rise of DIY, Art, Craft and Design
