The future – what does it hold? Is the Pantone Color Forecast an accurate way to predict color trends for the upcoming year? What about the latest sewing tools and techniques – where do you find out about them? Love the stitch pattern on the knit shawl you saw on your favorite TV show? How do you learn that? Do you need to travel across the country to the Craft & Hobby Association show to learn about these things or are there reliable sources closer to home (and screen)?
Join Barbara (@penguintrax) and Haley (@thezenofmaking), on Tuesday, January 22 at 2 PM EST to talk about discovering and researching new trends, the latest techniques and how to keep your crafting fresh, interesting and current.
What do you think will be the biggest crafting trend for 2013? Bring your links, experiences and predictions to the January 2013 Craft Social!

In last week’s Craft Social twitter chat, we got together with guest expert Kim Werker (@kpwerker) to discuss how you can set the stage for productivity as a maker AND/OR craft business owner. We touched on everything from organizing your work area to avoid distractions to organizing a spreadsheet to track expenses.
