Handmade Nation at the Museum of Vancouver

I’ve been invited to speak alongside Rob of Lotus Events and Got Craft?, and Erin of Collage Collage when the Museum of Vancouver screens Handmade Nation next week. I’m so excited!

If you’re unfamiliar with the film, it’s a documentary by Faythe Levine about the resurgence of craft. The people she interviewed are in the U.S., but the scene is pretty much the same in Canada and Vancouver has a thriving crafts community.

We speakers will talk about a bunch of things, from what this whole crafts thing is about to the crafts scene here in town to the role of the internet in the current revival. It’ll be informal and there should be time for Q & A before the screening. And the museum is hosting a reception and mini craft fair afterwards, so it should make for a lovely Friday night.

Questions? Fire away!

O.K. Here's a couple of questions–How big a part do you think the economic downturn has played in the “resurgence” of crafting, and how can we sustain that resurgence when/if things get better?

Is there another website that has had the impact on a craft that Ravelry has had on knitting and crocheting?
