Purl & Loop has a new monthly program, Purl & Loop Weaving Project. Once a month, they will donate up to 25 Wee Weavers (4 sett) to a teacher or organization leader who can demonstrate how they will use these products to expand weaving to a population that might not otherwise have the opportunity to participate in a fiber craft. You can find out more about this program at purlandloop.com.
