Beautiful yarn for a very good cause. Three Irish Girls have released a limited edition colorway “You Are My Sunshine” in honor of a customer and friend who lost her baby. In their words, the colorway “symbolizes the storm of emotions felt by families who are impacted by the loss of a baby, with deep grays, violets, greens, and browns that are chased with glimpses of sunshine and the return of bluer skies.”
It will be available only until March 15th, so shop soon! 20% of the sales price will be donated to Share, a not-for-profit organization that provides support and resources to families who have lost a baby.
Great to see the news of the “Beans for Brains” scholarship spreading through the “regular” media. Every year, yarn retailer Jimmy Beans offers a scholarship to young crafters for post-secondary study. Five awards of $2,250 are available for students across the US, provided by Jimmy Beans and other generous sponsors. More information on the program and how to apply here.
