Handmade Nation

BY Susan in Artsy |

If you haven't heard of the incredible book Handmade Nation by now, then you are certainly missing out! Written by Faythe Levine and Cortney Heimerl published back in October, the book has since become a documentary capturing the burgeoning craft and DIY movement across America. Currently there are screenings across the country (and other countries), and this week the flick is debuting in the big apple. The premiere screening on Thursday is completely sold out, but ...

Even if you're flat broke, you can still get it together to DIY some fab Valentine's gifts for your BF or BFF. Thanks to free or inexpensive stitch patterns, you can embroider a rad '80's cassette image (would make an awesome ipod cozy); stitch up a valentine's card or pillow, or make some cute embroidered stuffies like the whale or elfin couple. Embroidery is such a nice, affordable hobby - embroidery floss usually costs ... Read More

Cake or Death

 If you wanna know why Spidey's looking so worried, it's probably because he's been checking out the cake disasters over at the hilarious blog, Cake Wrecks. It's like Cute Overload , but with crappy ... Read More

Raised In Craftivity

BY Susan in Artsy |

Raised in Craftivity, curated by Mara Elena Buszek, is a long-running show at the Wignall Museum at Chaffey College in California . It started up just last night with a curator's walk and reception. The exhibit features artists who work in typically craft-oriented media like ceramics, beadwork, woodwork and knitting. These are usually disdained as being 'feminine,' 'domestic' and 'amateur,' but today, this kind of craft media is being embraced and subverted. Some ... Read More

Thread-letter day!

BY Lisa in Artsy |

  I just found out that this super cool looking exhibit, Narrative Thread, is going to be up for an extra week which means my (cold) lazy ass might actually make it over to the nyc gallery where it's showing. I'm a huge fan of embroidery in art so co-curator Orly Cogan's pieces (like the one above) will probably be my favorites, but I can't wait to check out all the crafty ... Read More

From UnBridaled

BY Sarah J. in Style File |

(Photos by Amanda Jaffe ) So Saturday, I visited the UnBridaled Expo , despite my absolute lack of interest in all things bridal. You should believe me when I say that getting married is the furthest thing from my plans these days, yet I spent my morning trying on jewelry, scoping out bamboo undies, and best of all, watching a fashion show of eco-friendly local designers' work, modeled by the Philly Roller Girls! Check out more photos below the ... Read More

A Very Bust-y Wedding Expo

If you're getting married soon, or know someone who is, and you're in or around Philadelphia on January 10, you should check out the Unbridaled Wedding Expo.    Unbridaled focuses on the alternative, the handcrafted, the creative, fun, and offbeat. Cosponsored by the Philly Roller Girls, the expo features local, eco-friendly vendors to make a wedding unique.  Last year's event featured a fashion show with roller girls as models, a pole-dancing ...

We're jamming, jamming...

BY Dawn in Eat Me |

In the slight chance you missed BUST's October/November issue, Lisa B. did a fantastic feature on canning that inspired me to do some canning and preserving of my own! This raspberry, fig and port wine jam was a huge hit at Christmas. Making it was so much easier than I thought it'd be and made great gifts. And although the holiday season is just about over, it's always a sweet idea to have some homemade jam on hand for fresh baked muffins and biscuits. If you ... Read More
