March is National Craft Month!
It’s the second day of March and you would think Spring temps might be settling in. But no. Instead we are preparing for another foot+ of snow tomorrow. So it seems fitting that March is also National Craft Month – because we’ll have plenty of indoor time for making stuff!
As a publicist for a craft book publisher, I see plenty of awesome makers, who share their talents with readers. In honor of Craft Month, I’ll be sharing thoughts, photos and projects from some of my favorites – and from those I think you’ll be most interested in.
First off, I want to share some pics from a book that has the coolest concept – it’s called BiblioCraft, and is written by a Rare Books Librarian, from the New York Public Library – Jessica Pigza. Her book includes wonderful craft projects inspired by resources from the library. And the projects were created by some of today’s hottest crafters – like Design*Sponge’s Grace Bonney, Heather Ross, Anna Bondoc, Natalie Chanin, Liesl Gibson and many more.
Part one of the book teaches you how to use your library – think call numbers and catalog searches. Part two is the meaty project section, and you see the library resources that inspired the creativity.
Take a look…
