You may not know it, but if you’re a quilter, sewer, knitter or crafter of any kind, you’re part of a revolution.
As TechShop CEO Mark Hatch puts it, “It's about building, it's about creating, it's about breathing life into groundbreaking new ideas. It's called the Maker Movement, and it's changing the world.”
The creators have been here all along, crafting, tinkering and DIY-ing in their homes, studios, anywhere that could house their creativity -- but the Internet has taken makers to a new level of exposure, innovation and cultural transformation. Treasured projects now have a place to shine, patterns can be shared in the click of a button, and entire crafting communities take shape in cyberspace.
So, join the Maker Movement and create a maker this holiday season!
Craftsy wants to keep fueling your creativity, so we’ve put together a Maker Mystery Box that includes inspiring supplies for any project you dream up.
We'll randomly select a winner on November 22, 2013, so be sure to enter before then.
Be sure to, share this post with a friend you think would enjoy learning to craft, and then tell them to enter for a chance to win a Maker Mystery Box—It has great supplies they'll need to get started!
