handmade nation

Today I stopped into Love, Me Boutique to pick up some scarves I dropped off last week for a customer to peruse. While there, I chatted away with Chara Kingston, the owner/operator/lovely person. She told me about this documentary that is being screened on September 24th as part of the Atlantic Film Festival here in Halifax called "Handmade Nation". The movie is a cross-country (cross US - we need a Canadian version!) exploration of the explosion of craftiness, DIY, art and entrepreneurship that has sparked a new arts and crafts movement in the past few years. I just watched the trailer and am very excited to see some of my world up on the big screen.....
