My name is Amanda. I am the founder of Mandi’s Makings and so glad you have found your way here.
This all started because I wanted to raise awareness for human trafficking and give back to survivors, but quickly became a community of makers wanting to make an impact. Over the last 6 years we have given over 2500 gifts to survivors of trafficking, partnered with organizations to build businesses for survivors and are now we are focused on partnering with YOU!
This site was created with you in mind. A place where you can come to browse designs and patterns. A place where we can share ideas. A place where we can collaborate with other makers and highlight the beauty in creating. A place where we can share how our creativity is impacting the world around us. And, a place where we can share helpful tips, tricks and tutorials on the things that have helped me (and other designers) become better along the way.
We are all learning and growing together, and I want this to be a place where you feel welcome. Whether you want to learn to crochet, have recently picked up a set of knitting needles (like me) or have been creating for 30+ years, this space is for YOU! 🙂
Come in. Look around. Say hi.
I am so glad you are here!
