Wow 3, count them 3 entries today. That NEVER happens. But so much is going down if I don't write about it now I never will!!
Susan Beal just forwarded me a link to an article titled "Crafty Bitches" in Portland's Willamette Weekly that I was interviewed for a bit back. It's a great long article about craft, BUT, I just left a comment because I felt that I wasn't represented well.
I have had a lot of problems with press, being misrepresented. Anyone who deals with being interviewed or doing press related stuff knows that one little mis-print or mis-quote can change everything, make you sound like a total goob (yeah, you heard me, goob!). Because of this I am very careful in interviews now to be as clear as possible when stating my answers to questions or commenting on topics. In this particular article there is a quote from me about craft & war. Honestly, I think it's just sorta just hanging out. You know, no context. Just floating there, then to be revisited by having someone comment on my quote. The quote is accurate, the problem is it was an answer to a question that wasn't printed.
Ahhhhh reporters. Gotta love them with every ounce, but dang, I'm not a goob!
Anyhow, you can read the article and my comment about Craft and Activism HERE.
