Giving to Craft Enrichment

Craft Enrichment classSince 1999, the Michael R. Patricelli Craft Enrichment program has provided learning opportunities that contribute to a vital and vibrant craft community in Boone, Watauga County, and beyond. Individuals whose donations support the Craft Enrichment program believe that traditional and contemporary crafts enhance our lives individually and collectively. Donors also understand that it is through their financial support that we can improve existing Craft Enrichment programs and provide the foundation for new ones.

With your support, we can purchase equipment and materials that will enrich the participants' experience as well as provide the tools and resources needed to establish new classes.

Your tax-deductible gift will greatly benefit our program and the community it serves. We sincerely appreciate your generosity and continued commitment to Craft Enrichment.

Please contact Craft Enrichment at if you would like to receive additional information or have questions.
