HUDSON, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores, the leading fabric and craft specialty retailer in America, is celebrating Earth Day with special Earth-friendly offers, inspiration and a giveaway, too.

On Sunday, April 21, from 2-3 p.m.*, customers can make an Earth Day Planter for their favorite herbs or flowers. The event is the third of 12 Simple Sundays Jo-Ann has planned for the year and allows crafters to create a planter with a Ball jar.
