Handmade Nation

I admit that I'm a bit of a frustrated DIY-er. I have cross-stitched, knitted, flirted with sewing and continue to do some basic crochet. I would love to make my own books. Yet I've never been able to fully immerse myself in any one field. So I am so inspired by these upcoming events. Princeton Architectural Press is publishing Handmade Nation: The Rise of DIY, Art, Craft, and Design by Faythe Levine , Cortney Heimerl. And it is accompanied by a documentary film.
And, thanks to the good people at DART, I have learned powerHouse Arena is hosting a panel discussion with the authors on Feb. 11. The film premiere will be at the the Museum of Art & Design the following day.
