Cozy Up With October Craft Classes


When the weather starts to cool down, I immediately want to put on my comfies and craft. Forget ever going outside again, I'd rather cozy up with my pup Henley, an embroidery project, and turn on some true crime tv show.


Want to join me in learning this relaxing and cozy crafty? This October you can choose from 10 in-person and virtual workshops + events to get your craft on. Learn a new skill, try a new technique, or brush up on something new.
