last night’s gathering of DIY folks & screening of handmade nation was super fantastic.  I have to admit to having spent at least an hour this morning trolling the websites of the amazing artists that were showcased in the film.
Check out these fine folks:
Buy Olympia:  a couple of cool start-up cats spreading the word and selling the goods
Jenny Hart:  embroidery like you have never seen before…. *shhh…think i’m going to try this next….*
Mandy Greer: fibre art fantasticness
The *most* exciting part is knowing that in seven short days i will actually get to take in 200 of these amazing people at my very first (and san fran’s 2nd annual) renegade craft fair (see previous post).  it is seriously, the best birthday gift ev-ah.
