It’s back! The week-long celebration of making that launched last year is returning to our craft desks and instagram feeds next week. What exactly is World Craft Week and how can you join in the fun?
World Craft Week is an annual community event and this year it’s taking place from Monday 23rd to Sunday 31st March 2019. It will see some of your favourite magazines, brands and designers celebrate the wonderful world of making stuff!
The event launched in 2017 and was such a success that its grown bigger, better and more fabric-filled ever since. This year, the organisers have picked a theme that we strongly support here on Today’s Quilter – mindful making. If, like us, you’re a big believer in the soothing power of sewing, then join in the fun next week. Here’s how…
1 Get started with free patterns
The World Craft Week team have created a free project book packed with 35 mindful craft projects for you to make. Download it today over at www.worldcraftweek.com.
2. Take the #makeitmindful challenge
To celebrate this week’s theme of the therapeutic power of crafting, the World Craft Week team are issuing an instagram challenge next week. You can join in on Facebook or Twitter too.

Share a photo a day to show what making means to you. There are 7 daily prompts (below). Day 1 will be Monday 25th March. We can’t wait to start sharing our own photos from the Today’s Quilter team.
