Fiber Art, whether creating textiles, fabrics, or art, takes "craft" to the next level. There is a long tradition for women's circles, where women get together and knit, embroider, crochet, sew, quilt, even bead, whatever the form, the point being to gather socially, converse, and create, that is, creating the text of the conversation, from one utterance to another, as well as working on an art project that typically produces a different sort of text (textile, texture).
These "crafts" belong under Women's History, and the word "craft" needs to be considered in higher regard than typically associated with women's work that is not art, but simply utilitarian. Crafting is what it is all about, but to belittle the practices of women's needlework by denying "craft" its rightful place as Art, by making a distinction that Craft and Art are not the same, when they are, is to continue feeding a gender-biased world full of misused words and backwards concepts.
