New crafts to learn…
“The beginning is the most important part of the work.” —Plato
All crafting projects have a beginning. It is in those initial stages where the excitement is.
Choosing the project and searching for the required materials.
Gathering everything together.
Then finally starting.
Whether it be the first stitch cast on, the threading of a needle, the folding of paper. (Whatever your chosen project requires at Step one)
May you also find the thrill in beginnings.
Here’s our crafty goodness to inspire your crafting journey.
