From my friend Rachel (average jane crafter):
"Handmade Nation (and director, Faythe Levine) will be coming to Austin the weekend of Sept 5-6. There will be loads of crafty happenings that weekend, so stay tuned for info.
Tentative plans include a book signing/part at Domy books on Sat. evening, two screenings on sunday and special crafty events Sunday afternoon at Alamo on South Lamar (where the screening will be held) as well as Q&A opportunities with Faythe.
There is a small number of special edition VIP tickets for the 2:30 screening. These tickets include a sweet swag bag chock full of goodies and more.
You can get info for the VIP tix here: http://www.sublimestitching.com/handmadenationtickets.html
Tickets for the later screening that day and non-VIP tix for the 2:30 screening will be on sale soon.
And the Sublime gals will be posting more information about the whole weekend soon.
It's so great to have this film finally coming here! I was able to travel to Portland back in April for the screening there, and it was a total blast. It was such a great way to celebrate the DIY community and connect with other creative folks in the community. Please help spread the word!"
I have been looking forward to seeing this, and am thrilled they arfinally coming to Austin!
