Thanks to our Madelinetosh community, we’ve raised $7,500 and have distributed $5750 to makers, stores, designers, students, indie businesses and friends of GG who have been impacted by the pandemic. We were able to gift $250 each to three amazing non-profits; Knit the Rainbow, Funky Town Fridge and Women for Women.
MT COMMUNITY LOVE FUND PROJECT UPDATE
We’re beyond excited to share this special Tiny Yarn Library, made for makers to take a skein and leave a skein in return. With the help of our amazing community (and Reno local carpenter, Michael Fritz) we were able to give this library to Jimmy Beans Wool. Our mission is to gift more yarn libraries, and inspire makers to create Yarn Libraries in their own communities.
If you’re in the Reno area make sure to check out this Tiny Yarn Library at Jimmy Beans Wool, located directly outside their retail shop.
BIG Thank you GG and all of the designers who donated their patterns and support for the MT Community Love Fund. We are beyond grateful for all their work to make this initiative a success.
The MT Community Love Fund will raise donations through creative collaborations and partnerships. The fund may offer financial grants, scholarships, mentorship, yarn and more to business owners, designers and students in our maker community. The MT Community Love Fund celebrates diversity and will encourage anyone in our community of every race, religion, age, ability, sexual identity, gender identity, skin color and body type to apply, especially BIPOC and LBGTQ+.
