Betsy Greer is a writer, a researcher and a maker who asks lots of questions and drinks lots of coffee. In 2002, she started writing about the connections between craft and activism, two very (at the time) out-of-touch terms who needed a PR boost.
Soon armed with the new term "craftivism," thanks to a friend at a knitting circle, she began to write about how embracing your craft, passion and creativity can lead to a more holistic life. In 2003, she started keeping track of all things craftivism at her online homebase, craftivism.com.
Lucky enough to be involved with the craft resurgence right from the beginning, she continues to be excited when people take up knitting needles, embroidery thread, fabric or other crafty media in their quest to navigate and process the world around them.
