“The Craftsmanship Initiative is dedicated to reclaiming craftsmanship’s principles of excellence, beauty, and durability as a pathway to a more sustainable world. The flagship venture of the initiative, which operates as a non-profit, is Craftsmanship Quarterly, a multimedia publication that focuses on master artisans and innovators whose work informs our quest.”  (Quoted from their website.)  They have featured our very own Deborah Dietz, Dahlia Society of California.  See this really well written and in-depth article.
