Spinner’s Cooperative in Qinghai

2 May

Alert: Shameless promotion of a project I’m involved in!

Below is a fundraising flyer from Shokay for the new Spinner’s Cooperative in Qinghai. Last year, I did several trainings for the spinners of Hei Me He (archive post here).

Rather that just buying yarn directly from the spinners, Shokay and I are helping the spinners form their own co-op. The plan is for the co-op to be self-sustaining within two years. We’re all working to help the co-op grow to include more women and provide more livelihood work in Qinghai.

If you’d like to get more information on supporting this program, please email shop@shokay.com.
