Phoenix Rising Fiber Event!

We have created a special relief project to support all our fiber friends in and around the Bastrop area who have lost their belongings, including their stashes, due the fires and smoke there. So many of you have empathized with their heartbreak and have asked how you might help. Let’s help them get a start on rebuilding their stash in the best way possible!

Here’s what we are asking… look around at your stash and find an item, be it a skein of yarn, a pair of lovely needles or a hook that you truly love… one that makes your heart sing when you see it and feel it, one that has been waiting for that most special of projects. That is the one we hope you have in your heart to contribute.

Then, write a note about what this item means to you and what you wish for the recipient and attach it. You can put your contact info on it if you like and maybe make a new fiber friend, or remain anonymous. It’s totally up to you.

Drop your gifted treasures off between now and Sunday, September 25th at one of the following local yarn shops:

Yarnorama - Paige

Hill Country Weavers - Austin

The Knitting Nest - Austin

Gauge Knits - Austin

Yarnivore – San Antonio

Susan, at Yarnorama, will then distribute all the gifts to the fire victims.We can’t thank you enough for all your outpouring of support and concern during this terrible tragedy, and look forward to Phoenix Rising!
