I've already ordered Handmade Nation [www.amazon.com/Handmade-Nation-Rise-Craft-Design/dp/1568987870] for our collection in Cook Library but you might want to check this out on a shelf somewhere. I think all of you would really enjoy and find this book encouraging and informative. My favorite profile is from a woman was a graduate student at Stanford studying sweatshop labor, consumerism and the industrialized process of how objects are made when she decided to make her own clothing which led to a career change. And coming soon a documentary [indiecraftdocumentary.blogspot.com/] on the indie craft movement.
Be in the know.
