Year of Self Care 2021!


What is it? 

This year we are focusing on self-care.  With so many other concerns on our plates, it’s been hard to take time to stop and focus on ourselves and our crafting. So we have set up some loose monthly themes and goals to keep you focused on crafting and taking care of yourself.  


How Do I Participate?

You want to join us?  Whoo!  That sounds amazing.  Just pick a craft project or activity that fits each monthly theme and tag us with #BSFE on FB, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, or TikTok.


What Crafts Are Included?

Um, is it needlework?  It’s included.  Knit, Crochet, Tat, Bobbin Lace, Needle Lace, Sewing, Quilting, Spinning, Weaving, Embroidery, If I Failed to Name Your Needlecraft It’s Still Included :)
