As I attempt to fade out this account and take a bit of a break there are some things that are too important to not post about. The new documentary film by Australian director Anna Brownfield "Making It Handmade" is premiering this August at the Melbourne International Film Festival and is not to be missed if you are in the area. Anna said the film will begin to screen in the states soon after so I suggest to start to follow this fantastic woman and her progress. More information and tickets for the premier can be found here. Meanwhile check out this clip from the film with Rayna Fahey of Radical Cross Stitch "I Wanna Live Here"- a fantastic example of Craftivism in action!

FUN FACT:: I was interviewed by Anna for her film in my hotel room when I was in Melbourne last year. I have no idea what I said and am totally nervous to see myself on screen, it's really weird to be on the other side of the camera.

HELP the Dream Rocket Project!

I just got an email from Jennifer March who is the powerhouse behind The Dream Rocket. They are in a Pepsi competition for $50,000 based on public votes and need our help. She says "if we win this money we have a chance at finishing the wrapping of the Saturn V and we are able to give out 2,500 free spots on the quilt!".

Can you take a moment to go vote here and pass this on?
