My favorite kind of announcement: The 75 Squares fundraising event raised $1500.00 for Project Open Hand! This is enough money to fund 750 meals to those in need. But taking it a step further, the funds were matched, bringing the total donation to $3,000.00! That means it's a donation large enough to serve 1,500 nutritious meals to the home bound, or critically ill.
I'm constantly impressed by the generosity of the fiber arts community, and its never-ending desire to help others.
Thank you to everyone who donated their handmade scarves, shawls, and wraps to the event; to the Project Open Hand staff and volunteers who modeled the pieces; and to the incredible folks who purchased pieces and now get to wear them with pride.

Happy Holidays, everyone!
