Hints for crafters

March is National Craft Month. Here are some ideas to make projects easier to plan and clean up. You can see more tips at www.i-craft.com

*Rub a fabric-softener sheet on your hands before using paint or glue to make cleanup easier.

*Pre-wash fabric before you paint, sew, or put glue on it to remove sizing. Sizing prevents craft materials from sticking.

*Use pre-moistened towlettes to clean acrylic paint off surfaces before paint dries.

*To thread a needle more easily: Fold thread in half, and pull the smooth edge through the needle's eye.
