Building a Crafty Community

Standard

Our mission here is to build a community of like-minded creatives.

If you see the potential in the things we have collected here, if it inspires a spark inside of you…we want you to join our community. You need to be here, we need you here, the creative community will be better with your active participation.

How do we go about this? That is where YOU come in. We can do all the legwork imaginable but the community isn’t about us, it is about YOU. We listen when you tell us what is inspiring to you, we ask who you follow, we encourage “outside-the-box” thinking (relish it even!) Following those cues we have scheduled outside instructors, artists and authors to come, teach and inspire.

The growth of our community through inspiring instruction is an exciting thing.

Here is the list for the next several months:
