Join us for another year of HERstory!!
For 2021, the HerStory focus is women who make a difference. Many of the women we are honoring this year are leaders in their spheres of influence, whether it be city, county, or country. It will be an exciting year, and we are so happy you'll be joining us!
For 2020, the HerStory focus was FIRSTS. We showcased the first woman to do X, Y or Z, and discussed the impact that door-opening has had on future generations of potential HerStory recipients.
2019 HerStory was all about the arts, and we learned about people who inspire and create physical art and auditory art. Women who make with their hands, women who make with their words, women who make with their voices.
In 2018 we explored women in history and their accomplishments in the STEM fields. We celebrated all women and shone a light on the women we don't often hear about.
This out-of-this-world sock yarn is hand-dyed right in Portland, Oregon by Knitted Wit in bright, look-at-me colors. The merino wool is completely sourced within the U.S from sheep to skein. As an artisan, hand-made product colors can vary slightly from skein to skein. For best practices with hand-dyed yarns, alternate skeins in projects requiring more than one skein.
