Enter Kickstarter. Beth Brown Reinsel launched her project on Kickstarter and has raised $20,000.00 in pledges. In return for the money pledged she is sending out patterns and kits to knit her amazing Scandinavian mittens. Kickstarter takes on projects such as creating films, publishing books, mounting art installations, and many more.
Although, Kickstarter is the hub, you have to do a lot of the leg work yourself to promote your project. Beth has been posting on FB and other social media sites. I'm sure that she has contacted a lot of people she has taught over the years for help too. Although there are a number of DVDs on stranded knitting, Beth's would be a classic. I'm so glad that she exceeded her original goal of $8,500.00
I think that I'll tell my son about the site. He has some art projects on the back burner. Spread the word. There are many of us who support the arts. Help a project, close to your heart, get launched!!
Here is some information from the site itself:
