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.
75% Superwash Merino 25% Nylon
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
