The craft hobby collections comprise material starting from the 1970s, covering eras when the importance of handicraft in people’s lives has shifted and crafts are no longer strictly a matter of necessity. The craft hobby collection is made up of materials created in the course of the free time of their creators, by their own choice and interest, and reflects the significance of handicraft to their identities and very lives. Hobby crafts are created on the basis of voluntary action.
