Non-Profit Crafting School Founder | 20

By Tsh Oxenreider | Wondery

Jo Ellis started a nonprofit crafting school in her town called Make Do, where she and others in the community use the unassuming power of different crafting skills like sewing, quilting, felting, and painting to make a difference in their community.

Jo first saw overseas how teaching something like sewing could change the attitude, perspective, and even future of young women, so when she returned home, she wanted to impart that same simple power in her small town.

She’s learning a lot about what it’s like to blend the running of a non-profit with holding on to her original love of crafting, and making time to wear her many hats well.
