Wyldwood Creative's mission is to provide a curated selection of fabric and tools, an inclusive community for makers, and to make crafting more accessible to everyone, no matter their skill level or budget.
Recognizing systemic racism is important to any business, no matter what they sell. Here at Wyldwood Creative we use our social platforms and online presence to work towards the education of the public about important issues. 2% of our monthly sales are donated to nonprofits that are fighting for racial justice. Most importantly we are doing the work within in our selves to combat racism wherever we find it.
"The beauty of anti-racism is that you don't have to pretend to be free of racism to be anti-racist. Anti-racism is the commitment to fight racism wherever you find it. Including in yourself." - Ijoema Oluo
Respect to Native Land
We acknowledge that our store is located on occupied Duwamish land. We honor the stewards of this land that have been here since time immemorial. We pay a monthly rent to the Duwamish people to help preserve their culture and to take accountability for treaties that have not been honored. To learn more about becoming a "real renter" please visit Real Rent Duwamish.
We believe everyone can benefit from making and there should not be a limit on who can craft. That’s why at Wyldwood Creative, we bring accessibility to crafting through our scholarship program and sliding scale pricing for our private lessons. So, regardless of your budget or skill level you can take part in creating art with us.
At Wyldwood Creative, we believe that everyone contributes to the community of inclusion. We believe sewing and making are for everyone! Regardless of age, gender identity, race, size, or any other factors, we want you to feel welcome in the store and help your creative vision come to life.
We do our best conduct our business in an ecologically responsible matter. We are working towards a more sustainable future by shifting our inventory to include more sustainably produced fabrics and notions. By the end of 2021, our goal is to have 50% of our inventory be sustainably produced.
Social responsibility is a core value of Wyldwood Creative and our strong values guide our business. We look at who our suppliers are and their values and only supply products from companies whose values align with ours. In doing so, we benefit our communities and support human rights. We are also working with our suppliers to hold them accountable to becoming more sustainable.
Enjoy the process
Making is not all about the final product. In our space we make for the joy of the creating. We emphasize being present and finding joy in the process VS focusing on the finished product. We help customers through the processes of self-expression and self-love by appreciating the journey in every single project.
