    different perspective

    I always thought of crafts/cooking/sewing/etc. as things femanists did because as far as I was concerned...a major femanist ideal is self-sufficiency. I have always connected the DIY ethic to femanism. So it's strange for me to read so many femanist womens opinions being that to do these things was looked at as the opposite of femanism. I didn't think of these things as girlie or womens work. The one thing I DID feel was looked down upon by the femanist/anarchist women (which I was one) in my circle was the way women chose to look...especially when it was in any way traditionally femanine. This is the beginning of a thought process for me...it's hard for me to articulate.

    I'm totally bumping this because it is quite relavent for a research paper I am starting. Basically, I want to explore how modern women (and men!) have reclaimed domestic arts (specifically knitting, since it is the most prevalent in contemp sources such as BUST.)

    I was wondering if any of you crafty people would like to fill out a short questionnaire for some of my first-hand research. No rush or obligation really, but it would be much appreciated!

    Age:
    Gender:
    Race/ethnicity:
    Hometown/region:
    Profession and/or area of study (if applicable):

    When did you learn to knit/crochet?
    Who taught you or how did you learn?
    What other domestic hobbies do you have, if any? (Cross-stitch, baking, spinning, etc.)
    How many male knitters/crafters do you know? How many female? (If applicable)
    Do you craft for yourself, loved ones, for a profit, charities, etc.?
    Does your crafting hold any significant political meaning to you?

    PM's are definitely fine, I will be checking back here obviously (in case anyone wanted to copy and paste it in a reply) but PM's and emails work too. Thanks so much again to all of you who have replied already!

    And as for the first part, thanks for moving it.. great idea. I had just decided to search "domesticity" over all the forums and stumbled upon this gem :)
