I've been thinking...

Since the fibers have been occupying more and more of my imagination, it seemed like time to begin working on the mission and planning . Here's what I have so far. Any comments?
The Mission of Sue's Luxury Fiber is:
• to spred the joy of fibers
• to offer affordable luxury fibers for spinners, knitters, weavers, felters, dyers
• to donate 5% of each sale to KIVA.org

What is KIVA?
Kiva.org is a micro loan agency that helps people in third worl d countries start-up or maintain businesses. Sue' Luxury Fiber lends to women in the arts or crafts. The re-payment rate at Kiva is very high, enabling the lender to re-loan and pay it forward.

How does Sue define Luxury?
soft, fine, shiny, colorful, and sometimes rare

What might you find at Sue's?
