Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft to celebrate National Craft Month
06
Mar '10
Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores is inspiring creativity with special in-store demonstrations and exciting new projects and products to celebrate National Craft Month. March was designated National Craft Month by the Craft and Hobby Association 16 years ago as a way to promote activities ranging from knitting, crocheting, jewelry-making, scrapbooking and more.

“This year, Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores is encouraging people to take time to craft a memory,” notes Brent Beebe, vice president, crafts. “With 63 million households crafting each year, we feel this theme reminds people what crafting can be—a memorable gathering of family or friends, or an individual artistic endeavor. It's about the process as well as the project.”

To introduce customers to new products and techniques, Jo-Ann will hold the following demonstrations in more than 200 locations across the country:

March 6: Wedding favors, baby shower favors, Tulip fashion textile crafting
March 13: Provocraft Cricut and Gypsy papercrafting machines, Fiskars papercrafting tools
March 20: Yudu Personal Screenprinter, Plaid Simply Screen
March 27: Easter foam projects

To find a participating store near you, visit the store locator on Joann.com and look for the Creative University icon in your state's store listing. You'll also be able to find a complete list of class offerings to help you build and discover new skills.

In stores, customers will find a pillar of projects with the 'Take Time to Craft A Memory' theme, including projects that refresh, repurpose or upcycle items most people already own into novel keepsakes or trendy fashion statements. The projects are also available online at Joann.com.

“Crafting allows you to express your creativity regardless of your skill level or budget. This is a great time to start a new project or learn a new technique,” says Beebe. “We encourage our customers to celebrate with us and take time to craft a memory.”
