Win A Ticket To See Handmade Nation

picture-11

We’re anxiously awaiting the Philadelphia premiere screening of the indie craft documentary, “Handmade Nation” on Saturday, August 1, 6-8 p.m at this year’s Philadelphia’s Buyers Market of American Craft at the PA convention center.

Handmade Nation is “a documentary of the work of a country-wide community of boutique owners, subversive stitchers, puckish printmakers and feisty knitters – independent-minded folks who’ve taken up the DIY mantle passed down from generations gone by. With filmmaker Micaela O’Herlihy, she captures a movement among people who value the handmade over the mass-produced and craft over convenience.”

So, we’d like to share this joyful excitement and treat our readers by giving away 4 free tickets to the premiere (thanks to the generous donation from Buyers Market).

How do you win a free pass? By sharing your creativity with us.
Share one image that illustrates your ultimate handmade moment, whether that’s a picture of your first sale, your craft room, an inspiring array of crafty materials, etc. Whatever makes your creative heart tick. Leave a comment with a link to the image, and don’t forget to include your email address so that we can get in touch if you’re one of the lucky 4.

4 winners will be randomly chosen on Tuesday, July 28th and the lucky few can pick up their tickets at Mew Gallery.

Let the creative display begin….

    making this little guy (we call him naarg) was probably one of my favorite projects because it was collaborative. my husband created the face and clothes and I did some of the sewing. we gave him to my nephew: http://www.flickr.com/photos/aardwolf/2619025278/in/set-72057594118077903/

    when you’re up all night finishing a project (or starting one) things can get…strange. sometimes, i start to feel like a machine myself when it’s 4am and my mind has stopped working, but my hands keep moving.

    Here’s a photo of me working on “recycled earrings” They are really something that does make me tick – I am passionate about making things, and about recycling.
