I know a lot of you are fans of Rebekka Seale and her incredible Camellia Fiber Company yarns, and I’m fortunate to have her as one of my best friends here in yarny ol’ Nashville. In fact, she was a huge help to me before we moved here, when we’d barely met, scouting out space for Fringe Supply Co. to land before I even knew where Bob and I were going to live. (Priorities, y’know.) Before getting into the yarn business, Rebekka painted fantastic house portraits and couldn’t keep up with the demand. Now she and her husband are pursuing adoption, which you may know is criminally expensive, and to help raise funds for that she’s taking house portrait commissions for a limited time only. Adoption is obviously a really personal matter and she’s been hesitant to post about house portraits on her Camellia Fiber Company feeds, so I’m sharing it here! I know the fiber community to be a warm and helpful one, and I can imagine a lot of you would like a custom portrait of your home and to help out a fiber friend in the process, so I wanted to let you know about this. If you’re interested, you can see some examples of past portraits and place an order at houseportraits.space
I have to say, I don’t think she’s charging enough for them (adoption or otherwise), so I would encourage you to insist on paying more if you’re able! And as my way of helping, I’m also offering a 10% coupon on your next Fringe order to anyone who commissions a portrait from her. Just forward me your order confirmation at <email@example.com> (or email me saying you’ve ordered one and I’ll confirm with Rebekka) and I’ll respond with your discount code.
My heartfelt thanks to anyone who’s able to help out with this. And of course, if you don’t have any need for a house portrait, I’m sure buying yarn also helps!

Good luck to Rebekka and her husband. Her house portraits are adorable! I’ll contribute by buying some yarn!
oh my goodness! this is so exciting for many reasons. so so happy for them in their pursuit. i have also drooooooled over her house portraits for a long time so i am going to see if we can get one asap!
That is very generous of you and wish her all the best. Criminally expensive is right…adoptions.
