National Craft Month (NCM) is a nationwide consumer awareness program designed to draw attention to crafts and the benefits derived from craft activities. Celebrated each March by consumers and the industry alike, NCM activities and promotions take place nationally and locally.
As part of this nationwide NCM effort, retailers across the country offer special classes, demonstrations, sales and promotions.
i-craft, the consumer-friendly NCM message is designed to instill the sense of pride current crafters take in their activities and helps make crafting more appealing to those consumers who have yet to participate. Fully supported by every segment of the craft industry.
As part of this nationwide NCM effort, retailers across the country offer special classes, demonstrations, sales and promotions. Many retailers participated in a nationwide contest sponsored by HIA (Hobby Industry Association), a non-profit industry trade association and Family Fun magazine.
