Be Inspired. Come Experience Craft Napa.

Set in Napa Valley, California, Crafting a Life, LLC, is a retreat and media business founded by Pokey Bolton that focuses on high-end art retreats. At Craft Napa, we celebrate the crafts of quilting, sewing, surface design, art journaling, and mixed media.

Since we all can’t meet at Craft Napa in January 2021, we’re bringing the art barn to you!
