Spotlighting the Top Open Source Crafting Tools
Handicraft is a term that describes many different types of
work where practical and decorative objects are
made by hand or by using only simple tools. Depending on your location,
the phrase 'arts and crafts' may be more commonly used.
Collective terms for handicrafts include artisanry,
handicrafting, crafting, and handicraftsmanship. This article focuses
on crafting using your hands.
This article highlights versatile open source software that
