Faythe Levine, (nicknamed “The Ambassador of Handmade” by The New York Times),
traveled 19,000 miles to document what has emerged as a marriage between historical
technique, punk culture, and the D.I.Y. ethos. She created a film and book by the same
name, Handmade Nation: The Rise of DIY, Art, Craft and Design which provides a
microcosm of the crafting community today. Participants in this community share ideas
and encouragement through websites, blogs, boutiques, galleries, and craft fairs.
