It takes a village, and a contest

Posted by Natalia Wilson on

Hi Friends, I usually don't say too much about charitable giving around here, but this time I am coming to you for help, and I want to reward you for your good deeds.

Judy has been a fixture at YarnCon over the years, and I would see her at Sifu Design Studio on Friday nights when she would come by to hang out and pick up her daughter, who is a talented dyer and knitter.

Sales were great, and have kept up ever since, which is just wonderful. For me, it has meant being able to finally upgrade some equipment so I can work more efficiently, and even getting some lighting for my booth for my next Vogue show in Chicago, my home town!
