Quarantine Craft Camp, Day Zero

Things are a little weird out there right now. I don’t know much, but I do know one thing… Creativity makes it all a little bit better! It’s good for our brains. It makes time fly by. It reduces stress. It (probably) reduces sibling in-fighting too.

Let’s make this the most createfull quarantine ever! Welcome to Quarantine Craft Camp (aka QuaCC, because we’re all bound to go a bit stir-crazy).

This post will be updated as we continue to add classes in the coming weeks.

The Supplies:

You can purchase supply kits to pick up at Make.Do.’s studio or to be delivered to your Searcy home. Just like our classes, all supply kits are Pay-What-You-Can.

If you don’t live in Searcy, you can order supplies from our Amazon List or make a very quick, very essential run to your local craft store.

The Schedule

You can join QuaCC daily for the Live video in the Make.Do. Group. If you miss it, you can watch it in the group later or find it posted in a blog recap at the end of each day (I think. If that doesn’t work, I’ll keep trying to find a way to share it with you non-Facebookers).
