March is National Craft Month

March is National Craft Month

Each week during the month of March, CHA will provide some useful information about National Craft Month.  This week we briefly address the history of our favorite month.

March is National Craft Month. Created by the Craft & Hobby Association in 1994, it was designed to help people learn about and re-discover the joy of crafting and all its many benefits.

From its humble beginnings with just a handful of manufacturers and retailers celebrating, National Craft Month has grown into an international celebration of creativity and innovation with millions of craft enthusiasts ‘getting their craft on’ during the month.
