Last week::
I took a trip out to Los Angeles for the Dwell Design Conference to be on the panel "

Crafting and Creating in Consumer Culture"moderated by the lovely Jordan Kushins (Assistant Editor, Dwell). I was on the panel with Brian Singer (Principal/Creative Director

Altitude) & friend Billie Lopez (Co-owner ReForm School).

I also took a minute to meet with Jenny Ryan (organizer of Felt Club and founder of HomeEc) and Tootie (Co-owner ReForm School) over at Cinefamily where we will be doing the Los Angeles premiere in August (NOTE: TICKETS WENT ON SALE TODAY HERE).


Monday, July 6th

Live radio interview: 7:30-8:00pm
KDHX-88.1 FM, community radio in St. Louis
"Tonight we kick off a month of conversations on "The Life Creative" -- folks of all stripes are getting down with DIY, whether knitting scarves for charity, planting victory gardens to avoid corporate food conglomerates or self-publishing conspiracy theories while wearing the tinfoil hats. What's behind our impulse to make stuff, to do stuff, to get more self-reliant and creative? And how can even suits benefit from more creativity? We'll talk about it all month with a variety of voices. Tonight's guest is Faythe Levine, author and film director of the book/documentary movie project "Handmade Nation: The Rise of DIY, Art, Craft and Design." We'll talk about her 19,000-mile journey to document the resurgence of indie craft and its implications for sustainability and subverting traditional capitalism...and the movement's limitations"
