Craftsy projects perfect for winter programming

Take and make projects 

This is a great option for libraries with limited physical space to host a large group of patrons or for libraries who want to make their programming more accessible. Gather the necessary supplies or ingredients and put them in a bag along with the instructions and hand them out to program participants. This way your patrons can make the craft or bake the recipe at home in their own time!  

Cozy patterns for crochet and knitting clubs 

Crochet and knitting clubs have been growing in popularity at libraries for years and Craftsy is here to inspire the crafters in your community. From simple stars and snowflakes that can be strung together into garland to cozy hats to keep everyone warm during cold winter nights, Craftsy’s selection of knitting and crochet projects has something for every skill level. 

Baked with love 

They say cooking is an art while baking is a science. Either way, I love spending winter making magic in my kitchen. The Craftsy winter 2022 project & idea book is full of delicious-sounding recipes from gluten-free gingerbread men to classic potato latkes and even festive cocktails to make your holidays merry and bright!
