Have you seen the movie trailer yet??? (Go take a peek, I'll wait.) Scheduled for release in 2009, the documentary is the companion to Faythe Levine and Courtney Heimerl's recently released book of the same name. In it, they travel the country to paint a portrait of the rise of the DIY craft movement. Capturing the essence of this tight-knit community that has developed through websites, blogs and on-line shops and illustrating how it connects back with the greater public.

A seemingly odd cocktail, perhaps - but one that feels familiar and comforting. Handmade Nation shares a story about creativity, collaboration and determination. To learn more click here and here.
