Betsy Greer (author of Craftivism: The Art of Craft and Activism and Knitting for Good!) talks to Peachy Keen about the power of positive affirmations, the lingering division between art and craft, and her life as a maker & permission giver. We discuss those pussy hats and what you can do with them, professors that are jerks, gatekeepers vs. permission givers, and growing up southern with the bad craft of the 70s.
