Back in 2010 we launched our very first Social Market for a Mirrix campaign. The idea behind it was simple: We would give looms to a few people in exchange for blog and social media posts about the participants’ experiences with the loom.
Since then we have had several incredible people take part in Social Market for a Mirrix.
Currently, we have five participants that will be blogging for us from June 2016 to June 2017.
Social Market for a Mirrix (Tapestry): Dani Diaz
Social Market for a Mirrix (Tapestry): Amber Kane
Social Market for a Mirrix (Bead Weaving): Krafty Max
Social Market for a Spencer Treadle: Donna Wynn
