You guys loved watching my last glue video so here’s another. I’m finishing projects left and right on this long weekend. Oh and a secret project I can’t share yet! Yay! We got snow last night and it’s so lovely sitting here at my desk watching the birds and melting snow. 🥰 All supplies are available in my shop. Link in profile. Glue used is Elmer’s. The only reason I glue some pieces is because my small child loves to pick some of my pieces apart. This helps minimize the damage from baby’s fingers. You do not have to glue your pieces. Please see other comments for details or questions I’ve already answered 👍 . . . . . #punchneedle #rughooking #tufting #tuftinggun #fiber #fiberart #yarn #punchneedleembroidery #punchneedleartist #punchneedleart #punchneedlegang #rughookingartist #glue #elmersglue #elmers #punchneedlelove #arizonaartist #tuftedpillow #punchneedlepillow #arizona #arizonaart #wip #rughookersofinstagram

TSA Travel Story Correction and Supporting BIPOC

♥ The Very Serious Crafts statement in support of our BIPOC friends within the knitting community:

View this post on Instagram

It’s been almost a month since serious discussions about race within the knitting community began on Instagram. We feel that it's important to make our support of BIPOC clear, and we regret not doing it sooner. If you don’t know us, we are @molliejohanson, @redhandledscissors & @handsoccupied, and together we host the Very Serious Crafts Podcast. We are all white, middle class women, and our privilege has helped pave the way for us to have creative careers. That has not been the case for everyone. . . This conversation on representation is ongoing, and is highlighting deep hurt, anxiety and trauma among our friends in the crafting community. While this conversation is taking place primarily in knitting spaces on Instagram (folks’ stories & story highlights, feed posts, DMs), this is something everyone should be paying attention to. To ensure a better future for the handmade community, one that is welcoming to all, we feel it’s only right to say something. This is too important to remain silent. . . We are so grateful to the people of color guiding and sharing in the #diversknitty conversation that’s been going on. We have tagged a few of them in the comments below. Thank you for your time and your work and your grace. It feels a bit cliche to say it at this point, but we are listening and learning, and we encourage our listeners to do the same.
