Ever since you were a kid, you’ve known that making things is fun. Paper mache monsters, fluffy pompoms made from wool, knitted jumpers, making your own decoupage boxes and decorations – and who said that fun had to stop just because you grew up? Craft Month is all about celebrating crafty little hobbies that keep you occupied on those gloomy days.
Craft month was created back in 1994 by the Craft and Hobby Association. Intended to help everyone rediscover the joy of crafting, its a month that’s all about learning new crafts, finding a new favorite handy hobby or perhaps revisiting a hobby you used to love back in the day.
In this month, crafters get together and get their hand’s dirty sticking, sewing, knitting, cutting, pasting, coloring, painting – and they are sure to tell you that there are very few better ways to explore your creativity that just letting loose and making whatever your heart tells you to.
