KnitSpinQuilt Shop

The KnitSpinQuilt Shop is now (again) hosted on Etsy.

Check it out, and use code “KNITSPINQUILTREADER” for 10% off your purchase!


KnitSpinQuilt started in 2015 when I realized that while being a graduate student meant I don’t have a lot of spare income, I do have the ability to make items and donate the proceeds to charity.

In 2015, I donated $900 to the Johns Hopkins CTY Scholars Program.  In 2016, I donated almost $3,000 to the Flint Child Health Development Fund.  In 2017, I am fundraising for Doctors Without Borders / Médecins Sans Frontières

In 2015 and 2016, I donated the full purchase price (less Etsy fees) to the charities — but it became clear that I can’t continue to do that.  So in 2017, I’m donating 30% of the purchase price (pre-discounts) to DWB/MSF, which will allow me to keep doing this for longer without wiping out my own pocketbook.
