Find all the crafts your heart desires at the American Craft Council Show this weekend.
The ACC show is one stop shopping for one-of-a-kind items hand crafted by artisans from around the country. Vendors will offer jewelry, furniture, clothing, accessories, and home decor - all unique, quality pieces shoppers won't find anywhere else.
To mark their 34th year, ACC is also planning extracurricular treats like wine tasting, artists' demonstrations, and a showing of the Faythe Levine film, Handmade Nation, a documentary on the rise of the handmade craft movement in the United States. Get all the details at: http://www.craftcouncil.org/sf/
If you want to read something to put you in the craft mood, I would suggest Melissa Leventon's book "Artwear: Fashion and Antifashion (Thames & Hudson, 2005)." Ms. Leventon is a San Francisco curator and costume historian and in her book she discusses the history and evolution of Wearable Art.
