Chronicle Craft: Handmade Nation comes to San Francisco!
While I was in NY recently I got to see Handmade Nation at the beautiful new Museum of Art and Design. I dragged along Ed Roth, author of Stencil 101 and we got a front row seat to in the lovely little theater. It was great to see so many familiar faces in the movie, including some friends and favorite crafters like Susan Beal, Nikki McClure, Jill Bliss, Jennifer Perkins, Heidi Kenney, and Jenny Hart. And of course it was nice to see local stores Little Otsu and Needles & Pens featured as well.
If you’re in San Francisco you’ll have a chance to see the Handmade Nation documentary on March 11th at the Mezzanine. It’s sponsored by the San Francisco Film Society and you can find more info here. Immediately following the movie there will be a panel discussion with Natalie Zee Drieu of Craft Magazine, Derek Fagerstrom owner of the Curiosity Shop and co-author of our upcoming Wallpaper Projects book, Lisa Congdon co-owner of Rare Device and a new Chronicle author, and Stephanie Syjuco. There will also be a mini-craft fair the night of the premiere, full of great vendors and local artists! And if you don’t already have it check out the Handmade Nation book, which is a great primer for the movie.
Thank you all so much for your great comments and ideas on our last post, since they’re still coming in we’re extending the giveaway for another week and will post the three winners of the Dorm Décor book here next Thursday!
