Moina Michael Birthday Bash Update!

Hello everyone!  I'd like to take a moment to sincerely thank everyone for their support and generosity! 

As you know, last month was Miss Moina's birthday and in her honor, we decided to host a Birthday Bash and to also challenge ourselves in crafting poppies.  This campaign was a huge success and we are very excited to share our results with you.

Several of our crafters pulled together and challenged themselves to make poppies.  With our efforts combined, we added around 400 poppies to our inventory!

Most exciting of all is -- we are getting closer to getting our Project Independence goal of purchasing an All-Terrain Wheelchair for a veteran!  This campaign alone brought in $935.39.  Adding that to our prior donations, that brings us to a grand total of $1,574.00.  We still have quite a way to go before we reach our goal but we are optimistic that in spreading this mission and teaching people about Miss Moina, we will gather more support as we go!

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank our wonderful local partner, Revival Yarns! This amazing local yarn store not only hosted the party but they also had all red yarn on sale that day in honor of Moina's birthday.  We are looking forward to all of our future opportunities of working with them and we hope you take some time to check them out if you are in Bottleworks. 

Check out some of the pics from our celebration below and once again, thank you so much for your continued support!
