Happy National Craft Month: Time to Learn New Skills!

Sewing at Green Street FairMarch is National Craft Month, a special time to celebrate crafts and the people who make them! It’s also the perfect time to learn a craft you’ve always wanted to take up. Over the years, we’ve heard a few common types of crafts that people are interested in, namely: knitting, silk screening, sewing and embroidery. Here’s a list of sites that can help you get started.


  • Knitting Help: The essential site for beginning knitters loaded with lots of videos!
  • Knitty: Lots of projects to  get you inspired.
  • Ravelry: A social networking site for knitters. You can find local classes, yarn shops and knitting groups here.
