Up-Stitch has a wonderful network of friends who support our mission in a number of ways: participating in sorting parties, spreading the word, teaching workshops or donating fabric and yarn. Our friends have many talents of their own that we’re happy to highlight here!
Old Bag Bags
Linda Dunn has volunteered on a regular basis to help sort through our wonderful, and often wacky, pile of donations. She and her partner Claudia Hartmark make amazing bags (sometimes with Up-Stitch fabric!) under the name “Old Bag Bags.”
In addition to helping us out at sorting parties the multi-talented Maureen Feeney has taught a quilted box workshop, a mug rug workshop, a chevron crochet workshop and done cross stitch with kids! Maureen stitches bags, pillows and gorgeous quilts under the name Maureen’s Keepsakes. You can see her projects on her Facebook page or reach her at: firstname.lastname@example.org
