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.

I think it must be exciting for you to witness this continued activity in the community you have documented; it continues to grow and other journalists are working to continue the dialogue. I'd be thrilled in your shoes! Best wishes...and thanks from the field.
