Bloggers Doing Good At Spun Goods

Handmade Textiles from Spun Studio
Nads and I had a chance to attend the Spun Goods event last week in support of Spun Studio, a social enterprise of Sistering, an organization that serves homeless, marginalized, and low-income women in Toronto.

Spun Studio is a testament to the power of community and crafting in building a sense of belonging as well as increased self-worth and self-esteem. Women are offered training in sewing, knitting, and micro business development. And a group of bloggers stepped up to offer their design skills and collaborate with the women to create one of a kind projects.

Hat’s off to all these bloggers for supporting such a worthwhile project. It’s a reminder to all of us of the power of collaboration, and support, and the cool things that can happen when you put a bunch of women together.
