Crafty Commando

Philanthropist Aileen Webb (1892-1979) was instrumental in promoting crafts, handmade goods and the arts. Brought up in the Hudson Valley and married into the Vanderbilt family her influence helped create the American Craft Council and later on the World Craft Council. The latter being formed in 1964 to: “promote fellowship, foster economic development through income generating craft related activities, organize exchange programs, workshops, conferences, seminars, and exhibitions—and in general, to offer encouragement, help, and advice to the craftspersons of the world.”

I like Texas the red hat echoes the Norton emblazoned tank.
