Challenges for Days; By Date 1st April (honest no April Fools here)

The start of another month but unlike any that has gone before.   We hope you all continue to be safe and well during these unprecedented times.  We crafters are the lucky ones, I have never met a bored crafter.  Stay safe stay well. 

The vast majority of challenges start on the 1st of the month, so that is a stand alone list. It will be followed by another list on the 8th, covering new challenges that started between the 2nd and the 8th of the month, another on the 15th covering those that started between the 9th and 15th and a final one on or around the 22nd of the month covering any that post later in the month.  This means that every challenge you see in each listing will be current and live.  To see challenges posted on other dates check the blog archive on the right or click the appropriate label, also on the right.

We are currently recruiting for more team members to help maintain these daily lists.  If you would like to join us and we are a friendly bunch, know how to use Blogger and have a Face Book account we would love to hear from you.   Maintaining a list generally takes less than an hour a week for some less than half an hour.   For more information please send us an email at the address below (in yellow)

The challenges on this list run by Date, not Day.
As with all our lists we have tried to check the rules of each challenge (key in sidebar) but we strongly urge you to check for yourself.

Our lists are growing as we come across more challenges,
if you know of one we have not listed yet please tell us about it
either by leaving the info in a message below or send us an email at

Thank you to those who are finding us and adding challenges to our lists.
Have fun Crafting.
Thank you so much for joining us!
