Try A Workshop for Craft Month!

Updated: Mar 5



Did you know that March is National Craft Month. These first few months of the year are filled with ways to dive in, try new things, and getting your hands dirty (kind of!) I love seeing crafters inspired to give embroidery a try and also fall in love with this needle craft. Through in-person and virtual classes, it's such a joy to see that ah-ha moment and the excitement of learning something new.
