Handmade Nation Premieres in Portland This Weekendcomments (0) March 30th, 2009
Handmade Nation, Faythe Levine's labor of love documentary, premieres this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (April 3rd, 4th, and 5th) at the Museum of Contemporary Craft in Portland, OR. Levine started the film in 2006, traveling to 15 cities and conducting more than 80 interviews with indie crafters. Due to high demand for tickets (Friday and Saturday are already sold out), the museum has added a third screening on Sunday, April 5th. Check out the northwest premiere trailers right here, and if you're in the area, don't miss it!
The museum is also hosting a full day of programs to complement the film, including a panel discussion featuring our very own Susan Beal. There's also a craft fair, crochet-along, and digital photo kiosk—so you can document your own involvement in the movement! And if you attend the premiere, be sure to keep your eye out for several CraftStylish contributors, including Michaela Murphy, Jennifer Worick, Lee Meredith, and Diane Gilleland. I'll be with them in spirit!
