From the American Craft guidelines:

American Craft is aimed at independent thinkers with a keen interest in the creative process. These readers recognize the many design choices they have ineveryday life, from their creative pursuits and the artful objects in their homes and workplaces to the clothing they wear and media they engage with. American Craft helps readers make excellent, constructive, creative choices. The core audience values community, sustainability, quality, and authenticity.

We value freelancers who can write for a general creative audience with clarity and insight. We love good storytelling that explores a craft artist’s struggles, doubts, determination, and triumphs. We like to read about how craft shows up in modern life, particularly if the writing is bright and accessible. When touching on craft theory or history, writers should take special care to write clearly and for a non-academic audience.

We welcome queries that sum up in a paragraph the most interesting aspects of a story subject. Please email query@craftcouncil.org with pitches and include the medium (glass, clay, fiber, metal, wood, paper, etc.) in your subject line, along with the department you're aiming for.
