Yarn Journeys Book Club
Details: Our yarn club will highlight and celebrate beautiful stories from BIPOC children’s authors. Both of us remember how important it was to see ourselves represented in the books we read as children.
What is Included in the Club?: Each Club will include 2 50g skeins of fingering weight, a variegated yarn with a coordinating semi-solid.
100% Superwash Merino
There will also be a bookmark that corresponds with the book.
Goal: We want to highlight the diverse voices that exist, and hope that people can learn and share them with every generation. Our hope is to open a dialogue and pathway to understanding and empathy.
In keeping in line with our goals we have reserved two sets for BIPOC makers. We will be offering this each month.
Dates: To begin in January 2020 and end December 2020
Listings will be up in our respective websites September 12 2020 at 10am central/11am eastern.
This month’s Club, will be based on Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn written and illustrated by Kenard Pak. These will be mailed out September 30.
Image Description: 2 skeins of yarn lay to the right of a hardcover book titled Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn by Kenard Pak. All lay on an ebony backdrop with flower and leaf cutouts. On the cover of the book is a colorful Autumn scene with trees from green, yellow and orange/red. A brown skin child with khaki pants, a deep green jacket and red scarf is walking. Behind the child, walks a white dog with brown/black spots. To the child’s back flies an orange butterfly and in front a blue and white bird. There are leaves being swept in a gush of wind all around the child.
