  1. Needle Arts
    Okay, this year, my plan is to do a minimum of 4 craft shows locally. Two are at schools that I did last year. Not big ones, but decent and close.

  2. Leisure challenges
    Anyone want to join me in a de-stashing challenge to work on using up stockpiles of craft supplies? My downfall is yarn. I am a yarn junkie. My containers of the stuff are visible proof. It is time to start seriously using up what I have and stop the alluring pursuit of the next delectable...

    I am in charge of the craft portion of our next family girls' weekend. We have about a dozen women, ages range from 30s to 70s. Some are crafty, some are not crafty at all, and some eyes are starting to go - so it has to be simple enough for everyone. Not too simple though, I don't want...

  10. Hobbies
    For those who attend or sell at craft fairs or markets, what types of things do people buy?
