And the saga continues...
It's my turn to write the last chapter of our 'Baltimore or Bust' blog post, but before I do that, I wanted to pass along some links to other chroniclers who have been writing of their experiences and observations of this chunk of the indie/diy scene. These have been popping up, and I read them - Many of them have been good overviews, talking about how refreshing the New Wave & the Searchlight sections were, others, not so much - Here is a small selection:
- From November of last year, when the New Wave of Craft section was being flashed around, written in the blog of Cindy Edelstein.
- This year, from Rania Hassan, an artist who wrote of her visit to the ACC show for the Crafty Bastards blog.
- Rob Walker, who wrote Handmade 2.0 for the NY Times Magazine, has been writing about some of the activity on his blog Murketing, here and here.
- Came across a blog post from a Annie of Imogene here talking about a recent SNAG conference she attended - And somehow, this is the blog entry that has sparked the most discussion - I myself have commented twice - It somehow came round to discussing the recent ACC Baltimore show, and the love/hate relationship between old skool & n00b crafters.
Excellent, stimulating discussions & observations - Which are fueling me to finish up our last chapter :)
Please, take the time to read the above blog posts, or at least mark'em for later reading!
