June//July issue of ReadyMade is out & Bruce Metcalf review

It was such a cool opportunity to get to pick stuff that I think deserves attention and have ReadyMade whip up such a great layout.

I got two pages of picks in the recent issue of ReadyMade including shout-out's to Palomino, Fasten, SkyHigh, My Love For You blog, 20x200, Portland Contemporary Craft Museum, Design For Mankind, the Cave Singers and the Third Drawer Down in Melbourne.

Also Bruce Metcalf wrote a review of Handmade Nation on the ACC Creating A New Craft Culture blog that is worth checking out if you are interested in the old school meets new school craft dialouge. Read it here.
