Warmth from the Inside Out
It is in the deeply cold months of January and February that handwork and crafts really come into their own. In pioneer times, warmer months were spent on outside work, culminating in the harvest. The cold months were times to rest, play music, make toys and try to stay warm! Here in Minnesota, we can claim some of that pioneering spirit as we face the cold and snow of January and February (and March, maybe even April but let's not get too far ahead of ourselves!).
In our modern schedules, the December holidays are much more hectic now so it is after the new year turns that most of us rest and regroup. Cozy crafts feel extra nurturing now; most of our classes include warm sheep's wool in some way. And of course a store named Heartfelt will have a natural affinity for Valentine's Day crafting!
