Brooklyn Tweed: Apart Together
Pay What You Choose — Support How You Can
In the wake of the developing pandemic of COVID-19, there remains a lot of uncertainty and fear. But we have also seen an encouraging surge of compassion and generosity from our community. Though socially isolated, our hearts and minds are aligned in brainstorming ways to bolster this interconnected network of small businesses, makers and designers.
Our industry is founded on the hard work and full hearts of beloved brick-and-mortar local yarn stores. Many are shuttering their doors to help flatten the curve and stop this virus from spreading. By looking out for their customers and employees and putting global health first, they find themselves in a potentially tenuous financial situation. We also know that many of our knitters work in public-facing industries and have no remote work options, placing their income at risk. All of us here at Brooklyn Tweed want to help.
In pursuit of that, we are launching our new initiative – Brooklyn Tweed: Apart Together.
First, shop with your local BT stockist if possible! Give them a ring or check social media to see if your LYS is open and able to provide personal shopping, curbside pickup or shipping at this time. This global event is ever-evolving and your store may have new information or offerings to help you shop safely. If they have chosen to discount their BT inventory, you can select skeins with confidence, knowing that Brooklyn Tweed will make up the difference between what you spend and what the shop would have made. You pay less but your shop earns in full!
At Wabi Sabi, our three discount codes are:
PWYC30 for a 30% discount
PWYC20 for a 20% discount
PWYC10 for a 10% discount.
If we don't have the yarn you're looking for, then we then encourage you to shop at BrooklynTweed.com. With Apart Together, we understand the financial fears that come with crises like this and humbly offer our help through a three-tiered choice of discounts. Simply select the amount you feel comfortable paying and apply one of the discount codes specified on their website here: https://brooklyntweed.
