The gocco prints and lettering are by the fabulous Kate Bingaman-Burt and the bags are courtesy of CraftStylish and Princeton Architectural Press, the publisher of the Handmade Nation book. The crafty contents were donated by dozens and dozens of indie designers — you can see a list of them here.

There is a fantastic article on the film in the Oregonian today, and the first two shows (Friday and Saturday) are already sold out! And Sunday’s new show at 5:30 was selling so well that the museum has added an additional show at 3:00 — very cool.

I can’t wait for this weekend!

ps: if you’d like to check it out, my little button-hairclip segment from this morning is already up on the AM Northwest site — just click “crafting with buttons” to see the video.
