It’s been gone for a while, but all of sudden you feel that spark. Ideas are coming fast and furious. Don’t look now but your creative juices are starting to flow again! There’s no time like the present to get out the glue gun, thread the sewing machine or tear out magazine pages because March is National Craft Month. Embrace your inner artist and whip up an original creation to celebrate!
If needles and thread are more your forte, grab your sewing machine and head on over to Mercersburg, PA, where you can stitch with the best during the quilting retreat at the Mercersburg Inn. Join Frankie Crosby, a quilter for over 25 years, as she teaches you some of her favorite quilting techniques. Nothing is quite as satisfying as creating something with your own hands. Dive into rustic furniture design at the Montfair Resort Farm located in Crozet, VA, and build a one-of-a-kind piece for your home. Joe Sheridan, who has been designing and teaching for over two decades, will reveal some of his special techniques and even customize a workshop just for you. And, if you sign up for one of the classes, you’ll receive a discount off your stay!
Getting a project started can be challenging whether you’re an experienced crafter or a complete novice. Sometimes you need a little nudge. Bed and breakfasts can help you get into the creative flow through a variety of weekend workshops and creative getaways. Gather up all your old photos, paper trimmers, art pens and rubber stamps because the Eastholme in the Rockies Bed & Breakfast, located in Cascade, CO, is giving you a fun-filled two days of scrapbooking. After all the embellishing is done for the day, lay back and relax under the soothing hands of a licensed massage therapist who will be on-site to perform a 30-minute “Stress Relief Treatment.”
Creativity is fickle; one day it’s there and the next…not. So, tap into your crafty side at a bed and breakfast this month and design a new kind of getaway experience.
