Sunday, October 25 at 1pm  
In Person: Filmmaker Faythe Levine

Members $10 / Public $13 / Kids $7
(includes Craft Fair & Book Signing)

Theres a segment of young crafters who are no longer interested in simply cross-stitching samplers or painting floral scrolls on china. Instead, this contemporary craft movement embraces emerging artists, crafters, and designers working in traditional and nontraditional media. Jenny Harts Sublime Stitching has revolutionized the embroidery industry. Each year Nikki McClure sells thousands of her cut-paper wall calendars. Emily Kircher recycles vintage materials into purses. Stephanie Syjuco manufactures clothing under the tag line Because Sweatshops Suck. These are just some of the fascinating makers united in the new wave of craft capturing the attention of the nation, the Handmade Nation. Filmmaker Faythe Levine traveled 19,000 miles to explore a movement of artists, crafters, and designers that recognize a marriage between historical techniques, Punk, and the DIY (do it yourself) ethos while being influenced by traditional handiwork, modern aesthetics, politics, feminism, and art. (USA, 2009, 65 min., color  With Jenny Hart, The Little Friends of Printmaking, The Dirt Palace, Susan Beal, Nikki McClure, Deb Dormondy, Mandy Greer, Stephanie Syjuco, and more!)

Plus micro indie craft fair (goodie bags for the first 50 folks), art exhibit, a skillshare or two, some creative/interactive performance art, and a book signing with author/filmmaker Faythe Levine!
