Betsy Greer has been called a lot of things, a crafter, an activist, an unsung hero, the godmother of Craftivism, among other things. After speaking on the same morning in 2011 at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts, Glenn Adamson noted he had never been asked to speak with a “more perfect foil.” While one day she wants to live in a cottage by the seaside, she currently resides in Arlington, Virginia. She got her M.A. in Sociology from Goldsmiths College in London in 2004. Her master’s dissertation was on knitting, DIY culture and community development.
