I learned a lot from this experience about how to manage the logistics of such a large outpouring and also a lot about my own limits in such an emotionally charged, unrelenting situation. The idea of having people write notes was captivating and helped people feel like they were contributing something positive in an hellacious situation… and they did contribute immensely. The notes bring tears of joy and comfort to those who receive them still. It’s going to take a long time for people to heal and just the thought that a fiber friend who they did not know sent them their thoughts is profoundly meaningful to them.
Again, I cannot thank you enough for all you and your customers did to make this happen.

In case you haven't heard there are some little penguins in New Zealand that are in trouble due to an oil spill. They need sweaters. You can read all about it here.
Want to help? Great! Come on down today (Friday 10/21) through Monday (10/24) and ask for the Penguin Sweater discount-- we'll give you 15% off of Cascade 220 and Cascade 220 Sport-- the sweaters need to be 100% wool and the link above will tell you all about that as well as provide patterns so you can make the sweaters just right.
Thanks for helping!
