Annual Holiday Awareness Calendar – Crafters

Craft, DIY or Decor Business

Pin this: Annual Holiday Awareness Calendar for Crafters. I don’t know about you, but to me, January/February is that time of the year that I crave order so I can get a massive amount of work done. Chances are: I am always busy in January, so it’s really after Chinese New Year to get organised with my knitting & crochet projects and blog articles for the year. 

For me, a calendar is paramount to being able to hold all balls in the air, and to be in-time to join the fun of annual celebrations. To bring you all along with me, today, I am posting the calendar I made with Holidays, Observances, Remembrance and Awareness Days for the remainder of the year. Please contribute, if you have ideas how to make the listings better for crafters. Love to get a few more creative entries, such as ‘knitting in public’ days and the like.
