Crafting is officially big again! Not only are people buying crafts to decorate and wear, they are making these crafts themselves. Crafting parties, books and classes are springing up all over the place. The latest of these is Handmade Nation, Faythe Levine’s book of craft culture that looks at the artists in the movement and examimes how they make a living doing what they love.

Crafters are hitting the web too with hip projects. Craftster.org is a website that was created to offer cool craft ideas for hip, off-beat, crafty DIY types.
