Do you find yourself always pushing your creative projects on the back burner as other, more pressing things come up? It turns out you're not alone. While interest in crafted items is at an all-time high, participation in crafting is diminishing.
Because of this phenomenon our friends at the Craft & Hobby Association started Cre8time: a movement designed to help people recover time and devote it to their particular craft. This movement also strives to create a place for everyone to share their experiences – the joys, lessons, and results – with the creative community at large. When we share our creativity, society becomes stronger, happier and more generous!
So, to embrace the Cre8time spirit, we're setting aside a day-- July 20th 2013, for everyone to dedicate to crafting with friends or on their own. Plus, we want to help you complete your favorite crafts. Enter Craftsy's Cre8time Contest here if you're a knitter and here if you're a quilter or sewist by June 29th for a chance to win a Craftsy workshop and a box filled with all the materials for completing it, during your day of crafting.
We're giving away two boxes (one with knitting supplies and one with quilting and sewing supplies) to two lucky winners! Better yet, each box will have enough fabric or yarn for four people to complete the workshop together.
The knitting winner will enjoy the yarn Craftsy Party in a Box including:
The Skein Knit Shrug workshop, 4 skeins of yarn, 4 sets of needles, and other small notions.
The Charm Pack Tote workshop, 4 1/2 yard cuts, 4 large charm packs, and 4 small charm packs, as well as some additional notions.
Be sure to enter the contest for a chance to win (go here for knitting and here for quilting), and make your plans to get crafting now. Let us know in the comments what you're going to do and make on July 20th!
