Created by me in 2019, The Community Fund connects the Little Skein community and helps my hand-dyed yarn and kits be more financially accessible to low-income and marginalized makers.
Little Skein customers and supporters opt to contribute to the fund, and at the end of each month, I select applicants to receive a gift card to cover or subsidize their Little Skein purchase. The fund also supports more people to experience the unique process of test knitting by providing full yarn support.
