oh dear...

we totally missed posting about the October 14th episode of CBC Radio One's 'definitely not the opera', which was all about Do-It-Yourself culture. but here we are, a few weeks later and you can download the podcast of this episode, you don't even need an ipod, you can listen to it right on your computer if you like. check out their page for instructions if you are a podcast newbie.

for this special episode on DIY and craft-culture, DNTO held a crafty contest,
101 Uses for a DNTO Square, where Canadian rocker Sara Quin (of Tegan & Sara) picked the winner. Each contestant was given a large piece of blue fabric emblazoned with several DNTO logos, and given free reign to do what they wished with their crafty hands. the finalists included: a tote bag, a treasure box, and an apron.
the lucky DNTO listener and crafty machine Jane Merks won first prize, which was to co-host an hour of the radio show with Sook-Yin Lee. Jane talked about her winning creation, the 'cootie catcher' and gave some advice on craft inspirations.
