As we approach Mother’s Day and Father’s Day this year, we have much to reflect on. The Maine Crafts Association has missed the familiar faces of its patrons and members as people locked down and changed their lives to become teachers, caregivers and more during the pandemic. Many of you have been the glue holding everything together for your children, your parents, your businesses and yourselves. The importance and strain of these roles has been exemplified with each long day.

While MCA wishes they could give you a whole new perfect world in a handbasket with endless wine and chocolates, the best they can offer are special storewide sales.

A Mother’s Day sale will run from May 1 to 9.
