Crafternoon! was begun by Britney Sinclair in Madison-area homes to create social spaces where Womxn of Color were free to be their authentic selves. Madison Public Library is proud to present Make Handmade Valentine Cards, the third in a virtual series of Crafternoon! events, as an online social space for Womxn of Color (and allies) to connect, create, and practice self-care in partnership with Bri Creation Station, Sweet Sorrel, The Bubbler at Madison Public Library and other generous donors. You can craft along with previous events on the Madison Public Library YouTube channel
