Seattle PI article on Handmade Nation

Big article in Friday's Seattle PI on the upcoming Handmade Nation book and video and the local crafting scene.

Miller, filmed at Urban Craft Uprising, a Seattle craft fair, described the DIY movement as "shunning mass-produced fare in favor of handmade goods."

It's a common mindset among indie crafters, some of whom view the very act of "making" as a political statement -- a rejection of corporate culture and sweatshop labor.
