Local Sponsorship from Stone Mountain and Daughter!
I'm quite happy to announce that this project is getting hep from Stone Mountain and Daughter, a local, independent fabric store here in Berkeley, CA. They have offered to help us get stuffing, sewing needles, felt, and thread at reduced rates. This means we'll be able to spend more money on gloves and give away more kits.
Stone Mountain and Daughter blew me away with their generosity!
Here's a pretty picture I nicked from their website:
Visit these wonderful folks soon!
