🚦On 4-28-23 start sending your packages to our new Wisconsin address.

Why we moved?
For those who missed the last couple of emails, the condo I rent, our headquarters for the last 12 years, went up for sale. Embracing change and looking forward, I am moving to Ashland, Wisconsin, where I will be closer to family and Knots of Love can spread out! Wisconsin is also far more affordable and centrally located! 😍

What will change? Only our shipping address.
Other than that, nothing will change.
Same great charity, different location.

What can you expect? There will be a short pause in shipping operations while we transition; everything else will remain the same.

🗓️ Please mark these two important dates in your calendar:
On 3-22-23🚦Stop sending your packages to our California address. Please pause shipping to our California address. Keep making your loving creations and hold onto them until we arrive in Wisconsin.
On 4-28-23🚦Start sending your packages to our new Wisconsin address. The address and submission form will be updated on the website at this time.

🏅 For those of you who are curious about the OC Fair. We will still have entries. Find out more information here.

❤️ We love and appreciate your commitment to Knots of Love and patience in this transition.
We will be up and running in Wisconsin in no time and shipping our heart & warming creations again before you know it!
As always, my inbox is open for questions. Please know that I will do my best to make this transition as seamless as possible. The board and I are here for all of you; donors, makers, doctors, nurses, and of course, our recipients.

Much love and many blessings,
Christine M. Fabiani, Founder
and the Board of Directors
