Lady Dye Yarns Kwanzaa Box
We plan to ship out early December around the same time as the Downton Abbey Holiday box. It’s our goal to have sign ups done now to make sure we ship out on time. ALL ITEMS WILL BE SHIPPED IN ONE PACKAGE
We want to announce that we have opened sign ups for our Kwanzaa celebration kit. Space is limited as we feel our capacity for clubs and collaborations will be at 300. Kwanzaa is a celebration of African-American Heritage and principles and founded in 1966 by Dr. Maulan Karenga. It starts December 26th and ends January 1st
Growing up, in my family, we didn’t celebrate Kwanzaa. It wasn’t until I was in college back in 1998 that I really started learning about Kwanzaa and what it represents including the seven principles. Over the years I have continued to celebrate Kwanzaa. Given what we are going through as a world, country, and fiber community, we hope you all celebrate with African-American community.
What’s included in this package for our Kwanzaa celebration are three items (per day) that represent each principle (21 items total). There will be yarn with a knit and crochet pattern. We will have other items as well but we will leave that as a surprise. These are the seven principles that Kwanzaa represent :
To strive for and maintain unity in the family, community, nation, and race.
Self-determination: Kujichagulia (koo–gee–cha–goo–LEE–yah)
To define ourselves, name ourselves, create for ourselves, and speak for ourselves.
Collective Work and Responsibility: Ujima (oo–GEE–mah)
To build and maintain our community together and make our brother’s and sister’s problems our problems and to solve them together.
Cooperative Economics: Ujamaa (oo–JAH–mah)
To build and maintain our own stores, shops, and other businesses and to profit from them together.
Purpose: Nia (nee–YAH)
To make our collective vocation the building and developing of our community in order to restore our people to their traditional greatness.
Creativity: Kuumba (koo–OOM–bah)
To do always as much as we can, in the way we can, in order to leave our community more beautiful and beneficial than we inherited it.
Faith: Imani (ee–MAH–nee)
To believe with all our heart in our people, our parents, our teachers, our leaders, and the righteousness and victory of our struggle.
