Handmade Nation Comes to Rochester!



We're thrilled to announce that this fall, together with Made by Rachel, we'll be presenting two screenings of the indie documentary Handmade Nation, Faythe Levine's exploration of the rise of the DIY art, craft and design movement!!


If you aren't familiar with this crazy great documentary that's been all the buzz in the online crafting community, you can see a sneak peek here (after you read the rest of this post, of course)!

The first showing will be on Friday, November 27th, to kick off our annual Indie Market. In addition to the movie screening, we will be holding an intimate panel discussion with some of our favorite artists and crafters from near and far, sharing with us their experience, stories and successes of making it in the world of making it!

The panel discussion begins at 7pm and the movie will begin at 8pm, with a short intermission for snacks just prior to the show time.

For those of you who will be out of town Thanksgiving weekend, our second showing will be on Saturday, December 5th at 8pm. There will be no panel discussion prior to the movie on this date but there might just be snacks!

Head over this way to purchase your ticket - only $5.00! Don't wait too long, as space is limited and sure to fill up quick! It's going to be all kinds of awesome.

We are super happy to be co-hosting this event with the wonderfully talented Rachel Chaffee of Made by Rachel, a first-rate Rochesterian - if I do say so myself! Check out her cuffs at Thread, in the South Wedge!

See you at the movie!!

This will be an interesting film to see... What a great idea! Why didn't someone think of this sooner? Why didn't I think of it!...
