I just heard from Faythe that she’s launching a new fundraiser for her film project, Handmade Nation: a raffle to win fantastic prize packages every month, starting with this bundle of cool stuff for March.
Just stop by her blog to buy $2 raffle tickets and you’re automatically entered to win the whole set, including a copy of I Heart Felt (Taunton, February 2008), a Handmade Nation T-shirt (you pick the size), a Handmade Nation pocket mirror, 3 Sublime Stitching iron-on transfers, and handspun yarn from yarnpunk. The drawing is March 26 and you can enter as many times as you like to improve your odds.
There is lots going on with the Handmade Nation film and book, too. Faythe says, “Cris has been hard at work in the editing room and things are coming along, this is the non-exciting part to share with you, but we are chipping away at our footage to bring you a great documentary about the community.
“In other news, Handmade Nation the book is in the design edit phase which is really super exciting — getting to see mock layouts and actually see the pages as they will look is really satisfying!”
I am very honored to have an essay in the book… it will be out in November from Princeton Architectural Press, and hopefully we’ll get to see a cover peek and hear more updates soon. Congratulations, Faythe!
