March is National Craft Month, and we here at The Wright Stuff want to wish you happy crafting. The coming spring air is already getting the creative juices flowing for those of us who enjoy making things with our own hands, and our physical limitations need not prevent us from pursuing our favorite hobbies.
We appreciate all of our friends who are into crafting, and we are dedicated to giving you the tools you need to craft successfully.
Crafting involves tools, and for those with muscle weakness or other physical limitations, using specialized, adaptive tools is often a no-brainer.
Scissors that open on their own
Scissors are required for almost any arts and crafts project. The Easy Grip Scissors are made so that the whole hand can wrap around the handles for extra leverage, and the handles open back up on their own. Cut yarn, string, paper and more with greater ease as your project comes to life.
Sew with one hand
Like many people, perhaps you have resolved this month to devote more time to sewing, embroidery and/or crocheting. If you principally use only one hand, sewing can be impossibly hard. Solve this problem with the Embroidery Hoop Holder, which clamps to the edge of the table and features an embroidery hoop at the top that is useful for embroidering, sewing, crocheting and darning. Dive back into the art of making fabrics.
Secure your grip on tools
For any other tools you may use to build your artistic dream, consider our Gripeeze DIY Support Glove for the right hand or left hand. This glove features a strap around the palm and knuckles that increases grip strength and reduces strain. It’s a great accessory to possess for your creative DIY projects like painting and gardening.
Get ready to make a mess!
Whatever your hobby happens to be, it probably involves messes, stains, accidents and drops. While the Burn Resistant Smokers Apron is primarily made for smokers in wheelchairs, it also makes for a handy crafting apron for protection against needles, hot glue guns and paint.
Happy National Craft Month! Start your project now with the adaptive tools you need to make arts and crafts accessible to you.
