National Women's History Month :

National Women's History Month- for 2016 honors women who have shaped America’s history and its future through their public service and government leadership. Although often overlooked and undervalued, collectively they have dramatically influenced our public policy and the building of viable institutions and organizations. From championing basic human rights to ensuring access and equal opportunity for all Americans, they have led the way in establishing a stronger and more democratic country.

Each of these public leaders succeeded against great odds. The diversity of their experiences demonstrates both the challenges and the opportunities women in public service have faced. Their ability to use the art of collaboration to create inclusive solutions and non-partisan policies, as well as their skill and determination, serve to inspire future generations.

Since it’s humble beginnings, craft month has grown tremendously over the years, from just a handful of retailers and manufacturers, to now an astounding international celebration of millions of craft enthusiasts all of them “getting their craft on”.
