WorldCrafts partners with artisan groups throughout the United States. The artisans are unable to gather together due to the current pandemic. They need our prayers and encouragement during this time.
Artisans always appreciate receiving cards or letters of encouragement. If you would like to send them an encouraging word, you can send it to the addresses listed below.
