TL Yarn Crafts Podcast, Season 2, Episode 3

Happy summer, babes! We’re back with more yarn goodness on the TL Yarn Crafts podcast. Today, I’m sharing my new favorite crochet hooks, the book I just can’t put down, and how much we’ve raised so far in the TLYC Birthday Fundraiser.

This has probably been my best birthday month yet. I’m over the moon at how much we’ve raised for the George Floyd Memorial Fund and Movement for Black Lives. Watch this podcast episode to see how big the donation is so far, and check out this blog post to contribute through the month of June.

    I just found you! You are a wealth of information! It’s August 1st and I’m wondering if your sales are still going to George Floyd and Movement for Black Lives. I would love to support both you and this cause. Unfortunately it took George Floyd’s death to wake people up, but I really want to keep this momentum going. Thank you – I have a lot of your work to catch up on!

      Hi Barb! I’m so glad you found me as well. The fundraiser is over (we raised just shy of $10K. wow!), but the memorial fund is still active and you can donate directly.
