Buy Handmade!

Got an email from the Handmade Consortium today. The number of people who have pledged to "Buy Handmade" has grown to over 10,000! Of course, there are many of us who buy handmade items anyway. Check out their website.

In addition, the New York Times magazine featured an article on the growing craft movement in the US. Here's the link. Etsy is featured as are some crafting organizations such as the Austin Craft Mafia and the Church of Craft.

Check it out and happy hand-making (which is what I'm doing with most of my spare time - Christmas is coming and that goose ain't gettin' fat...)
