On Saturday (Aug 1st), I am going to the Philadelphia Buyers Market of American Craft show. The Buyers Market is a wholesale show which features over 1,500 artists showcasing their work for shops, galleries and members of the press. I am just super excited to see some new work as well as finally meet some of my favorite artists in person.
After the show on Saturday, there is a screening of Handmade Nation, the documentary about the the rise of craft and diy in the US, which I will also be attending. The screening is open to the public and tickets are only $5.

WHEN: Saturday, August 1, 2009, at 6 pm
WHERE: Pennsylvania Convention Center, 1101 Arch Street, Room 103 Philadelphia, PA
TICKETS: Only $5. Buy in advance at Art Star, the craft gallery, at 623 N. 2nd Street, Philadelphia, or at the screening, while supplies last. Seating is limited!
