Abstract (Document Summary)

Edgewater resident [Brandy Agerbeck] lies on a bedspread she made from various fabrics. Agerbeck, 31, is part of a new generation that views crafting as a way to express personal beliefs about social issues. Agerbeck's do-it-yourself attitude stems from "not wanting to impact the environment." Graphic artist Cinnamon Cooper of Rogers Park, who sells her one-of-a-kind purses online, is among the urban hipster crafters. She doesn't consider country crafts as her "aesthetic."
