handmade nation documentary




The handmade nation movie is complete!
FYI: In 2006, Faythe Lavine hit the road armed with a camera. Traveling to fifteen cities and interviewing countless crafters along the way, Lavine assembled a film which chronicles the rise of the craft movement through its various manifestations of blogs, online stores, independent boutiques and craft fairs. Screenings are scheduled on the Handmade nation blog.Unfortunately, for us Canadians there are no screenings scheduled, however I did have a chance the other day to check out the documentary in book form and it looks fantastic!
