You all are rock stars in our book!! We could use your help! By becoming a sponsor you officially become a Socks that Rock*STAR!
As most of you are aware over the past year we’ve dealt with massive yarn delays with pretty much all of our suppliers with the most serious being the latest fiasco with our Socks that Rock. Blue Moon has experienced some amazing love and support from our very loyal and supportive knitters during this time.
You all have been extremely patient, understanding and kind during what has been one of the most trying times Blue Moon has experienced. Right up there with the whole sock club and bank returning everyone’s money kind of stressful. We consider ourselves lucky and grateful that you are our knitters, crocheters, spinners, weavers… .
Since it’s obvious our industry is changing ~ mills are closing and wool supplies are in question ~ we are looking to problem-solve this issue. In order to assure that we are not in this position again Blue Moon is going to purchase a very large inventory of Socks that Rock in all of the weights. Doing so not only gives us a stockpile but also stimulates the mill to produce more consistently. It also covers us for any more mill errors. Of course in order make this happen it takes quite a bit of funds. I have been brainstorming how best to raise these funds besides going into debt or raising prices which brings us here, our community and an idea ~ Socks that Rock STAR Sponsorship.
One of the hardest things for me in life is asking for help which is odd since I love to help, you would think they go hand and hand and yet. What I know is that the almost 20 yrs of being Blue Moon we have created and been part of a wonderful community of fiber loving folk that have often left me speechless by the love and support shared. So based on my experience of this stunning community, what I know and what I have seen, heard and felt recently of how much we all love Socks that Rock and how sad we all are when it is not readily and consistently available, here’s my idea. I am asking you to help Blue Moon gain control over our beloved sock yarn which assures it will always be here when we all want it and at a price we can afford.
I know the power we all are together. I have been so lucky and blessed with our community. I saw it first hand years ago after the bank returned everyone’s money for the sock club because they thought we were running a sock knitting scam. I saw it, heard it and felt it when everyone signed back up and showed up at all of our shows for over a year with cash. One of the most loving and humbling experiences of my life. So… my dear yarn loving friends let’s stock pile some yarn! Hmm…maybe I need to keep one of the pods.
