Hand-dyed yarn is an indulgence, not a necessity. But, small indulgences can be surprisingly nourishing in hard times.
I invite you to "pay forward" a little of your yarn budget into my Community Fund. Your contributions get pooled with others' contributions, and go directly to another maker, so that folks with extra room in their budget can help cover small indulgences for people who need them.
Your contribution also supports my work by paying me the full retail price for my work, because dyeing yarn is my job, and how I pay my bills.
About The Community Fund
Donate anywhere from $1 +
Your funds are pooled with others' contributions
At the end of every month, I issue gift cards to applicants to help subsidize (or cover) the cost of their purchase
Everything is confidential and on the honor system, because that's what I value: generosity and community
Grants are issued around the first of each month
An accounting of what's been donated and what's been regranted is here
Your donation is not tax deductible. It is a direct payment to me (and on which I pay income tax), and you are trusting me to use these funds to make a grant to someone who needs a small indulgence like yarn
Thank you for supporting this program which helps to make our community more connected and inclusive. It's been running since 2019 and has funded gift cards to more than 100 makers.
