Community Notions Program

The Community Notions Program aligns with Promised Fibers first goal of providing support to fiber artists pursuing their craft. This program will fill what we see as a gap in our community. This program will allow for people to donate their new or gently used fiber arts notions to Promised Fibers and in turn, Promised Fibers will send those notions out to people who request them. Requests will be filled on a rolling basis and are dependent on the donations received. Click here to request notions.

This program is focused on the continental United States, but there will be international opportunities as well. Continue reading for how to donate and how to participate internationally.
