Museum of Contemporary Craft Event


I'm looking forward to being a part of a discussion group at Portland's Museum of Contemporary Craft tomorrow. The Kaffeeklatsch will be a casual round table discussion of the DIY movement in Portland that will include myself, fellow PDX Super Crafty member Susan Beal, Diane Gilleland of DIY Alert and Justin Hocking of the IPRC. Here's what the museum has to say about the event:

From craft fairs, etsy.com sellers and zinesters to the independent music scene, bike activists and “foodies,” Portland has a reputation as an epicenter for Do-It-Yourself (DIY) culture. Join guests Susan Beal and Cathy Pitters (PDX Super Crafty) and Justin Hocking (executive director, Independent Publishing Resource Center) for a discussion on DIY, its connection to craft and the contemporary resurgence of all things independent.

Did I mention that there will be coffee? Please join us for thoughtful crafty discussion, coffee and a much needed election day distraction!
