Ways you can support me (if you’d like)

Have a browse in my Etsy shop and see if any of my yarns tickle your fancy.

Join me on Patreon with a subscription of a few $ a month and get access to Patreon-only content. During the Covid-19 crisis I’ll be running regular virtual meet ups for my $6 a month Patrons.

Buy me a £3 coffee through Ko-fi. I’m investing half of all coffee money and 10% of my Patreon income into craft-based businesses in areas of the world struggling with poverty. The projects are all through www.kiva.org and you can read more about them here.
