The workshop operates independently for a month without any on-site support, producing the spring Galaxies collection. Website design and marketing efforts are assessed to prepare for a major sales push.
The workshop switches to repurposed cotton t-shirts and reclaimed zippers to improve financial and environmental sustainability. The I Found the World winter collection of products is finished and shipped.
100 yards of organic cotton arrive from Mali, a cloth-maker with a daughter with an intellectual disability is hired as the workshop scales up production, and a local peanut cake business is added for diversification.
Ruby Is Respectful fall products are finished with an embroidered MFC logo and shipped to our distributing partner. The workshop adds a paper-making program, and an impact assessment tool is in development.
