Just saw Handmade Nation screened at the Bean cycle/ matter bookstore in Fort Collins, CO last week. Inspired me to go deeper into the buy local mentality. Recently became acquainted with the proprietors of the local leather workers who run tread light gear and other local artisans and crafts people at the Fort Collins "Freedom Market" last Saturday. Thanks for making this film and I hope it touches more people. I write a blog at www.tompainesghost.com and am trying to create a completely paper-free market of ideas there. We are having a blogging contest over there and would like to invite you and your blog patrons to submit entries.

I've been raving about Handmade Nation, both the book and the documentary, to everyone I know. I do wish you continued success. Thanks for all you do to support crafters.
Faythe, I had no idea you were from Milwaukee! I'm a Madisonian now living in NYC. I'm working to find a venue to screen your movie here. . .Was the Museum of Art & Design the only place that hosted a screening in the city?
Happy Bew Year Faythe!I so cover that crazy crochet throw on your sofa!Xoxo,The PCM
