Hello, Crafternooners! Maura Madden invites you to enjoy a fun-filled afternoon of crafting.... Named after a monthly event that comedian and crafting superstar Maura Madden began hosting in 2002 as a way to get her friends together, meet new people, and have a good time making some cool stuff, Crafternoon is both an entertaining how-to guide and an irreverent social manifesto. Organized by month and theme, Crafternoon explains how to create and host a fun-filled casual gathering (including recipes for snacks and decorating tips) that celebrates the art of crafting. Knot nautical-themed crafts to wear, quilt new additions to your home decor, make the perfect gift for any holiday, or feel free to BYOP (bring your own project). All crafters are always welcome and encouraged to bring guests, and if your knitting or clay-shaping skills are a bit rusty, that's fine, too -- there are instructions aplenty! A must-have for anyone who wants to get their craft on, this quirky guide offers a twelve-month blueprint for a year of connecting with friends old and new, and enjoying a possibly messy, but always fulfilling afternoon.
