Five Questions with Pam Harris
Today's interview is with Pam Harris, archivist intern at the American Craft Council Library.
What is your favorite/most-read art or craft book in your personal collection?
The Cake Bible by Rose Levy Beranbaum. I could not possibly make a wedding cake without it. My current craft is cake decorating.
What book or magazine would you like to sneak out of the ACC Library?
Aileen Osborn Webb’s privately published biography.
What book(s) are you currently reading? Any kind of book is fine!
I love mystery series. I am currently reading the newest P.D. James novel, Death Comes to Pemberley.
What hooked you on craft? What's the first craft you remember seriously catching your eye?
My mother taught me to knit when I was 3 years old. After that I started sewing. I had a little manual Singer sewing machine when I was 6 years old and made doll clothes with it. I wish I had time to sew and knit now.
If you could master a new craft, what would it be?
Clothing design. I love textiles, style, and color.
Five Questions is a brief Q&A about books and craft, with people who love and use the American Craft Council Library.
