handmade nation is a book and film documenting the rise of DIY, craft, art and design culture that will be arriving in book stores in november this year and film festivals for 2009, respectively. do you heart craft and diy culture? do you attend craft fairs? organize your own stitch and bitches? well, you should pre-order the handmade nation book, it's a must have. (which you can do here.) many indie artists and movers and shakers of the diy/craft culture will be featured in the book. peeps like jill bliss, nikki mcclure, monica canilao, needles and pens and the list goes on! to help out w/ production costs for the film you can shop at the handmade nation etsy shop. where you can purchase this awesome craftifesto poster illustrated by kate bingaman-burt. what a great way to support craft community! (don't wait on this one folks, it'll be gone quickly for sure!) stay tuned to my love for you in the coming weeks for a q&a w/ the lady behind it all; faythe levine. in the meantime you can find out lots more info on the handmade nation blog.
