It's almost March, and you know what that means – Dr. Seuss's birthday (March 2), Mardi Gras (March 4), leprechauns (March 17), and the official start of spring (March 20), which absolutely cannot come a moment too soon! In additional to all of that, March is also National Craft Month, making it the perfect time to finish up that UFO, learn a new technique, or try some fun new bead shapes. Need a little inspiration? Come back here for ideas and tips all month long. Be sure to check with your local shop or bead society to see if they have special activities lined up for the month. Or visit these websites for more crafting fun!
Fusion Beads is hosting a 30-day challenge with great beading ideas every day of the month.
Blue Buddha is hosting a Maker's Day on March 8, featuring make 'n' takes and demos on everything from chain mail (naturally) to sewing and lampworking.
