Crafting Change

Founded in the COVID-19 era, we learned firsthand what a group of inspired craftivists can accomplish together, even while being physically apart.  Crafting Change believes in a world where makers feel inspired and connected to the multitude of creative projects that make a difference in the world around them.  Crafting Change seeks to build an inspiring and trustworthy collection of these projects through relationships with underserved communities and the organizations that work closely with them.  Craftivists connect with each other via an accessible, digital community with resources for honing their skills.  Together, we make high-quality items that bring joy, comfort, and support to those in need, and make crafting fun.  

 
 From our founder Tiffany Herbert: 

I never fully appreciated the value of my ability to sew until a global pandemic hit. And now I know it is a superpower. It can save lives. I never fully appreciated the power of tens of thousands of  us with sewing machines, and crochet hooks and computers and Facebook accounts either. We are strong. We are amazing. And we are crafting change before my very eyes every single day.

The pandemic will end, but it has highlighted the vast inequities in how resources are distributed in our country. There are far too many who are in need of basic items: hats, socks, blankets and (masks); There are nonprofit hospitals and NICU's in need of donations, there are far too many frontline workers who make minimum wage who need help with basic items like scrub caps. There are children who need hats to stay healthy to go to school and a mask to be able to do so. We can help because we can craft these items. 

I have started this non-profit because we are now mobilized. While our focus will remain on pandemic relief and partnering with organizations who still need masks, we will transition to other areas of need and craft them as we have volunteers to do so. Our 501(c)(3) is pending, once we have it we look forward to helping  with shipping costs and supplies.  

It is my sincere hope that you feel the same way I do...empowered! I feel the earth has moved and I am not going back. Together we can craft the change we want to see in our communities and beyond.  Join me.   We Can Do It!

Fundraising efforts go to supplies and shipping costs. Our At-Home Heroes are busy right now creating, we need help shipping their items to their final destination. We need funds also to continue to provide fabric and yarn to our craftivisits who have already sacrificed so much this past year getting their handmade masks all over the country during this pandemic.

We are a Colorado Nonprofit Charity and have applied for our 501c3 status with the IRS!
