Update–MMHP Sandy Relief Fundraiser Update

I’ve decided to continue running this past weekend’s Sandy Relief Fundraiser through the end of November!  Not only will this give me time to photograph more yarn for the shop (yes, I am bad about that), but it will also allow me to mix up the charitable giving a bit by giving me the opportunity to focus on another worthy charity or two.

So… watch check back in the Etsy shop later this week to see what’s new!

Here at Moose Manor South (our studio and winter home base on Long Island), we’re in the process of recouperating and catching up with real life following the fall fiber shows.  However, in the aftermath of Hurricane/Superstorm Sandy, we needed to do something to help our community.

So from now through Sunday night (November 11th), Moose Manor will be donating 20% of the purchase price of every listing in our Etsy shop to a very local-to-us charity–the Babylon Rotary Club’s Sandy Relief Fundraiser.

Right now we have some Superwash Sock skeins listed, but more yarns will be available tonight as well as throughout the weekend.

We here at Moose Manor South made it through both Sandy and the nor’easter relatively unscathed.  Help us to help so many of our neighbors who weren’t so fortunate.  Thank you!
