Wicked Flannel Donates 100 Masks for Boston Public Schools Families - May 12, 2020

Storytime Crafts is so grateful for the support from Wicked Flannel, and for generously donating 100 adult and youth masks for Boston Public Schools families in need. 

     Wicked Flannel is a small family owned business run by a husband and wife team, Molly and Ben St. Jeanne, in downtown Hampton, New Hampshire. They opened their doors on April 17th, 2019 with a mission to give back to the seacoast community and New England as a whole. They have transformed their flannel-themed clothing store into a mask-making production center and have donated 2,300 masks. To inquire about masks visit:

Rafa Nova donated 150 masks to Storytime Crafts to provide to vulnerable adults and youth in the Boston Community. 

     Weeks after launching their fair-trade fashion start-up Rafi Nova, Co-founders Adam and Marissa Goldstein pivoted from making backpacks from vegan leather and vintage South East Asian textiles to manufacturing safety-compliant, washable masks for essential workers. 

     Giving back is a core Rafi Nova value. To date, they have given away more than 15,000 masks to those in vulnerable communities and to workers on the frontline including police departments, fire departments, hospitals, and homeless shelters. To inquire about masks visit:
