Fundraiser Update 🙂

Hi Kids,  Have I told you how wonderful you are lately?…….well you are. We have some of the most generous and amazing folks on this email list. So now you have to sit down…..those 2 “pay what you want” tea towel patterns and the auction have raised $19,641.00 and we are happy to round that to $20,000.00 for the Maiwa Foundation. Charllotte Kwon was speechless when I gave her the news on Saturday. 

So thank you, thank you, thank you…..you have no idea what this means to artisans who work with Maiwa. It lets them know that there are weavers and artisans in other parts of the world who are thinking of them and sending them love. We all work with our hands, and no matter where we live, we all feel strength from creating textiles.  That’s what ties our community together and we have such an awesome community!

Thank you…just one last time.
Sending tons of love,
Jane


Organic Spring & Easter Tea Towel Kit

Some things take a little longer than others to get up and running …..
how about these two beauties ….
we tried to get these kits ready for Easter ….

This tea towel kit is made entirely of organic cotton. Weaving with organic cotton is a great way to begin supporting yarns that are respectful of the earth and the farmers that grow them. We know it is more expensive, but even if you use regular cotton for your warp and organic cotton for the weft you will still be making an important contribution. Our organic cotton is GOTS certified (Global Organic Textile Standard)
