The craftgasm roadtrip
I'm headed to Portland (or PDX as the cool kids call it) this afternoon for what has been dubbed "craftgasm", a weekend of all things crafty. I'll be driving down with Craftstylish managing editor Michaela Murphy and her man Greg and we are going to join in festivities already under way. The weekend came together around the Northwest premiere of Handmade Nation, a documentary exploring the rise of the indie craft movement. (Check out the video of the fun opening credits.) I'm so excited for the screening tonight at the Museum of Contemporary Craft.
But wait, there's more!
Button It Up author and craftstylish blogger Susan Beal will be on a panel before tomorrow's afternoon screening and then we'll all convene for a crafting session at Susan's amazing home. Hanging out with her daughter Pearl is just the icing on the cake. Mmm, cake.
The weekend also involves a trip to a tiki bar and the Little Blue Waffle Wagon. As much as I'm looking forward to the waffle, I'm even more excited to be hanging out with such amazing and talented folks.
