Cozy Crafting: Why You Should Take an Online Workshop This November


It felt like a pretty drastic switch to fall this year in the Pacific Northwest. I must admit, I've been bundling up in sweaters for a while now. Sometimes even two or three as I figure out how to use our new home heating system without paying an arm and a leg to stay warm (home owner problems :P) But even without that, layers of coziness are my thing and this time of year you can usually find me curled up in a pile of blankets stitching away.


One of the good things to come out of the craziness that has been 2020 so far, has been online workshops! It's been a joyful experience to connect with fellow makers, crafters, and friends from all over the world. And the best part? You don't even have to leave home!


We can cozy craft together from anywhere. If you're looking to learn something new or connect with friends through an online workshop, try one of these online workshops I have planned for November. From winter botanicals and snow globes, to lettering, space, florals, and pins, there's something fun for everyone to try!
