TOUTING AMERICAN MADE: Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia plans an encore of its “American Made” program this fall. The artisanal fair and workshop will take place Oct. 16-17 at Grand Central Terminal’s Vanderbilt Hall, with a party the night of Oct. 15. “American Made,” features communities and individuals who have turned their passion for handcrafted merchandise into small businesses. “American Made” will give out awards in the categories of crafts, design, garden, style, food and technology, selected by the editors of Martha Stewart Living, as well as Audience Choice honorees chosen by popular vote on the “American Made” Web site. “There is currently a return to community that focuses on the handcrafted and local, and a repopulation of America’s Main Streets with such businesses,” said Martha Stewart, founder of MSLO.
