Handmade Nation

The indie craft movement is coming to a big screen near you with Faythe Levine’s new documentary and book, Handmade Nation!

Faith traveled to 15 cities and interviewed 80 crafters to gather material for the project. The movie includes an interview with Callie about the roots of the Church of Craft, and the book contains an essay along the same lines.

You can check the Handmade Nation website to find screenings of the movie in your area, and get some background by checking out Faythe’s blog.

Here’s the trailer:
