Arts, crafts[edit]

I have reverted an edit that replaced "arts and crafts" with arts and crafts. They are not the same things. I have added a link to arts and crafts in "See also". - PKM (talk) 03:56, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

Expansion[edit]

I've added some text by User:Durova from the into to the Textile Arts portal and restructured this a bit; it still needs expansion. - PKM (talk) 18:51, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

Art vs craft[edit]

This distinction between craft and fine art is applied to the textile arts as well, where the term fiber art or textile art is now used to describe textile-based decorative objects which are not intended for practical use.

Anecdotally, there does not seem to be consensus on how to use this term among the fiber arts/crafts communities I have been a part of. The question of whether knitting sweater is an "art" or a "craft" can result in considerable debate. Does anyone have a citation for this, and a scope over which it is relevant?
