Each year the Festival chooses an outreach project to benefit people in need through fiber arts. In 2015 we were happy to support a New Jersey not-for-profit: YCS, the Youth Consultation Service (ycs.org). YCS has been meeting the needs of children and their families for almost 100 years. Its mission is “to partner with at risk and special needs children, youth and young adults to build happier, healthier and more hopeful lives within families and communities”
Festival organizers are looking into similar organizations for our 2016 Outreach effort. Look for our announcement this summer!
