Welcome to Twinkie Chan’s Tissue Box Bakery! We are all about crocheting, creativity, and channeling our craft toward a charitable cause.
Here’s how it works:
- Crocheters can use sample patterns and inspirational photos on our site to crochet their own cute, cake-themed tissue box cozy. Original designs are definitely encouraged!
- Crocheters then mail us their cozies, along with a personalized hang tag with their name, their website, a short message, or whatever they choose.
- We photograph and list cozies in our shop, and all proceeds from these sales (minus credit card or PayPal fees) will be donated to FoodRunners.org, a volunteer organization dedicated to alleviating hunger in San Francisco. Food Runners picks up excess perishable and prepared food from businesses such as restaurants, caterers, bakeries, hospitals, event planners, corporate cafeterias, and hotels and delivers it directly to shelters and neighborhood programs that feed the hungry.
- If space allows, Twinkie will also bring your tissue box cozies to the craft shows she vends at throughout the year.
- If you are a crochet designer, you can also submit tissue box cozy patterns for sale or for free, and if I feel the pattern is a good fit, I can link to your pattern shop or blog.
