Abstract: This study illuminates how women position their relationship to everyday textile craft practices (e.g., knitting, sewing, crocheting) and to mathematics. We employ discursive psychology and conversation analysis to analyze interviews with crafters. Rather than just (not) being “math people,” preliminary findings reveal that speakers discursively orient to mathematics as consisting of both “lower-level” and “higher-level” categories, and speakers appraise their own mathematical abilities with regard to each.
