One of our long-time customers recently e-mailed us the sweetest little picture of her new friend "Flat Maddy". Flat Maddy is a self-portrait drawing of actual girl Maddy who is participating in a school project based on the childrens book "Flat Stanley" by Jeff Brown. The Flat Stanley Project is used in many schools to teach reading and writing but also to get kids excited about those subjects. We think this is awesome and wish Girl Maddy and Flat Maddy the very best in their adventures! Thanks Jenn for sharing her with us! Flat Maddy has now officially visited and played in the yarn at Jimmy Beans Wool! :)
