There is plenty to do and celebrate in March as the frost begins to thaw and Spring begins to bloom. Enjoy the March art dates, challenges, and specials!
March is National Craft Month. Whether you enjoy card making, sign making, embroidery, knitting and crocheting, scrapbooking, leather working, wood burning, fly tying, jewelry making, or another craft, this is the month to set aside some time and energy and see what you can come up with. You may even want to devote a number of hours to dabbling in a craft you’ve never tried.
