During 2016, The Yarn Mission has grown considerably. We have continued to hold regular knitting meet ups in Minneapolis, maintained a strong production base in St. Louis, and begun organizing in Atlanta and Brooklyn. In 2017, we want to continue to pursue sustainability by living cooperative economics and being further involved in the production of our materials.
For us this means
1) ensuring that every person involved with The Yarn Mission has their needs met. We all do work and our needs differ. We want to insure that none of us are wanting in terms of our basic survival. It is the least that should be expected from community.
2) Ensuring that those interested have the knowledge and materials to spin and dye fiber. Since we exist in multiple cities, it means that one of each item will not suffice. However, we value building a community that shares.
3) Encouraging the redistribution of resources for the sake of regeneration. You can read about this on our website blog - http://theyarnmission.com/from-reparations-to-regeneration-a-call-for-the-redistribution-of-wealth-resources-and-access/
We appreciate you helping us live our liberation.
