2019 Donations & Wrap-Up

Hello, everyone! It’s been quiet here for a while, because I’ve been keeping very busy.

I had a lovely three months in England from February 2019 to May 2019, and after coming back to the USA, I re-opened the shop, and was honored to share a booth with 1 Geek 2 Craft All at Indie Untangled.

In 2019, thanks to income from KnitSpinQuilt’s Etsy shop and show sales, I was able to donate $775 to RAICES Texas and $100 to Planned Parenthood.

It’s incredibly important to me to be able to put my money where my mouth is: supporting issues of justice and equity for all persons, including and focusing on those who are marginalized by and victimized by our current administration’s policies and institutionalized racism in America, where I happen to live. So 2019 was the year I donated to migrant and refugee justice and to reproductive justice.

I’ll post again soon with plans for 2020, because my donations will be going to a new charity.

Best wishes to all as we move onwards into the future, no matter what it may bring.

I sew and bead to fundraise for charity. I have two spinning wheels and three sewing machines, and more knitting needles than I probably really need.
