The mission of “Alive with Purpose” is to support mental health causes in Minnesota through the sale of hand-dyed yarn. Since one in five persons in the United States is diagnosed with a mental illness, the cause is too important to ignore. A portion of all sales will go directly to mental health programs, crisis centers, etc., in Minnesota. The aim is to reaffirm that all persons, regardless of diagnosis, carries inherent human value and is ALIVE WITH PURPOSE.

Participation is only $20! You will also need to purchase yarn, needles, notions, and the pattern from Raverly.

"The Twisted Ewe is the place anyone may come and find the creative fibers within themselves, that when woven together create something warm and beautiful."
When I began to dream of The Twisted Ewe, it was a place where people felt comfortable about coming and just hanging out with other knitters. To sit around a table and talk, exchange ideas (whether or not they are related to knitting) and help each other out. In this day and age it has become very easy to not have to interact, directly, with each other. I feel that as human beings we need to have direct contact with each other and I hope The Twisted Ewe becomes a place to do just that.
