about

Do something creative every day! InA Year of Creativity, learn how to throw the perfect creative party with your friends—with organizing tips, 25 project ideas, and even recipes for snacks.

A "craft date" isa fun get-together with a handful of creative friendsin which yousurprise each other with craft and DIY projectsusing cool materials, inspire each other, andmake beautiful things together. At each date, a group of participants share a self-made project to be re-created by the other attendees. Materials are individualized for each participant and given as a unique personal gift along with the instructions for the project. A craft date is different than a workshop since you get to choose the lovely people that you invite, and as the organizer, you get to participate in all the projects. Invitees can put their own spin on the project by using their favorite colors, materials, or techniques. This way you end up with a range of different interpretations and results, leading to new inspiration and ideas.

A Year of Creativityis a book for everyone with a basic knowledge of crocheting, knitting, and sewing. It does not teach you how to crochet or explain how a sewing machine works. There are plenty of other books for that. What it does do isinspire crafting enthusiasts to make something together,learn from each other,and have fun doing it. You'll find within:
  • An introduction to craft dates and how they work
  • Tips on planning your craft date events
  • Plenty of project ideas (short, long, and cooperative)
  • Plus recipes for party dishes that keep the creative juices flowing
You willshare ideas,discover new inspiration,and find new friends while creatinguniquely beautifulaprons,knit garlands, infinityscarves, haberdasherybags,cards,pencil cases, and more.
    Have you had a great craft date or are you working on a neat project and want to show it off? There's a place for this in thecraft dates community.On Instagram, for example, you can tag your photos with, or search for the hashtag#craftdates. You can have a look at each other's work, drum up inspiration for your own dates, invite your Insta-friends, or organize a "blind date" with creative people from your town or city that you don't know yet. A whole world will open up. A very creative world is waiting for you inA Year of Creativity.
