March is National Craft Month

Did you know that crafting can reduce stress, build self-esteem and increase physical dexterity? In fact, recent studies from New York University and Harvard have shown that activities ranging from scrapbooking to knitting can actually improve concentration, while enhancing health and mental wellness. 

According to the Craft & Hobby Association, an international not-for-profit trade association consisting of thousands of member companies engaged in the design, manufacture and distribution of craft and hobby products, the benefits of crafting include:

  • A way to spend quality family time, entertain children and make family connections 
  • Relaxes and De-stresses
  • Creates lasting memories
  • Provides a way to salvage and reuse old items
  • Provides a way to revive clothing and jewelry
