Did you see Handmade Nation at The Flicks? We did, and it was a truly inspiring documentary on the rise of the DIY craft movement.
Boise has a strong DIY scene in its own right, and in the interest of expanding and educating about the scene, The Record Exchange Gift Shop has just added a slew of DIY arts and crafts books.
The books, many of them how-to guides, cover topics including stitching, T-shirts, toys, zines, art and others. You’ll also find local homemade products such as greeting cards, T-shirts and handbags. Just look for the “Made in Idaho, Made By You” sign.
