Symeon North is going to kill me but I’m going to do this anyway.
Many of you new people will not remember her or the fabulous fiber and yarn and spirit she gave to the fiber community. Anyone that’s been around a while will remember her. Her laughter, her politics, her….just her. Many of us have worried and missed her since she disappeared.
I’ve been in contact with her off and on, when she had a phone (she hasn’t had internet for a long time). Due to a whole mess of crappy circumstances, she’s being kicked out of her home that she shares wiith her man and 2 kidlets. They are living on pocket lint. And I want to help. I know some of you do too.
I’m not trying to give you a sob story or try to guilt you into anything. I’ve given only the base facts because I’d really be dead if I embellished. If you want to help too there are a couple of ways.
If you know Symeon and know her email addy – her gmail one. And you feel ok about just sending her some moolah through paypal, please do it.
If you didn’t know her but still want to help, I’m trying to put together some benefit auctions. I have to do this sort of fast because she’s supposed to be out by the end of the month even though she’s trying to hang in until the kids finish school for the year.
Last week I showed off some yarn and it’s going to be used in a shawl that I’ll auction off.
It’s a Forest Canopy done in my handspun Merino Silk. It’s not one of my colorways, it’s a prepared fiber from Ashland Bay called McKenzie.
So keep your eyes peeled and soon there will be an auction for that shawl and a few other awesome things you know you’re going to want.
