Get ready for a monthlong celebration of crafting with electronics!
BIG news, everyone. The month of March, aka National Craft Month, has arrived. This monthlong national celebration was established in 1994 by the Craft & Hobby Association (thanks, guys!) to help people rediscover and learn about the wonderful world of crafting and its many benefits. Ah, such a beautiful idea.
I use craft quite heavily in my work, and being a capable crafter continues to help me learn and master programmable electronics. In fact, in many ways I consider my physical computing skills as a set of creative tools with the purpose of enhancing and growing my craft practice. Needless to say, as a pretty aggressive craft advocate, this special month is near and dear to my heart. You’d better believe I am planning to celebrate this momentous month by continuing to publicly obsess over the marriage of craft and electronics, or, more elegantly, e-crafting.
In order to get everyone in the crafty head space for National Craft Month, let’s take a look back at some of our favorite recent projects at the intersection of craft and tech.
Stay tuned this March for upcoming Craft Month posts and let us know about ways you have combined crafts and electronics in the comments below!
