Water Rights For All!
We are artists and activists devoted to changing the world, one potholder at a time. This is our THIRTEENTH year weaving potholders in support of water rights.
Our potholders are 100% cotton, made of loops from Harrisville Designs, a mill in New Hampshire. Therefore, they are entirely made in the USA! We sell two sizes: 6x6" for $8 each and 8.5x8.5” for $12. All of our materials are donated, so every penny we make goes directly to H2O for Life.
This is Ella's thirteenth year weaving potholders and Mabel's eighth.
To date, we have raised over $17,000. This summer we raised $2,935.65 for water projects for families of the Navajo Nation of New Mexico. Our newest goal is to provide piped water for one home in Appalachia. Communities in parts of rural Appalachia face three key water challenges: lack of household water access, poor water quality, and lack of wastewater services. Appalachia spans 420 counties across 13 states, from southern New York to northern Alabama, and is home to approximately 25 million residents. According to the Economic Innovation Group’s Distressed Community Index, McDowell County in West Virginia has the highest level of distress of any county in the United States, with an index value of 100 on a scale of 0 (most prosperous) to 100 (most distressed).
