I'm really excited for the upcoming Bay Area premiere of the indie crafts documentary, Handmade Nation by my friend Faythe Levine. The Handmade Nation event is hosted by the San Francisco Film Society as a part of their montly SF360 Film + Club series taking place on Wednesday, March 11 at 7:30 pm (doors open at 7pm) at Mezzanine (444 Jessie Street at Mint). Tickets are $8 for SFFS members and $12 for non-members.
Following the screening, I will be a part of a panel along with my fellow crafters: Lisa Congdon of Rare Device; Derek Fagerstrom of The Curiosity Shoppe and DIY Co-editor at design*sponge; and Stephanie Syjuco, fine artist and professor.
There will also be a mini-craft fair component to the night with the following artists and vendors: Dutch Door Press, Diana Fayt, Cara Lyndon, Miss Natalie, Mittenmaker, Nous Savons, Sharon Spain, Woolly Hoodwinks, Zum, The Curiosity Shoppe, Little Otsu, Needles & Pens and Rare Device.
For more information and to buy tickets, visit the San Francisco Film Society site.
It will be fun to finally see the movie that I've seen Fathye filming at all the craft fairs throughout 2006 and to see most of my talented and crafty friends on the big screen! See more about the Handmade Nation documentary with this video preview:
