Why Are Americans SO Crafty?



According to the Association for Creative Industries , “Today, crafters are the youngest they’ve
ever been”. “The largest percentage of crafters (41%) are millennials, between the ages of 18-
and-34 years old. Some 36% are 35-to-54 and 23% are 55 and older.” With a total market size
of $36 billion, crafting supplies are sold at some 75,000 retail outlets. Crafts are big business. At
the top of the heap is CRAFT- Craft Retailers and Artists For Tomorrow. Hosts Geralyn Breig and
Brian Gibbons speak to Diane Sulg, Executive Director of CRAFT and creator of American Craft
Week which is October 4-13, 2019 this year to get the scoop on this phenomenon.
