#warmtheline in Georgia

Warm the Line is a grassroots group of crafters who came together wanting every eligible American to exercise their civic duty to vote. We send warm handcrafted items and hand sewn PPE to voters waiting in lines at the polls. We started this for the general election and are now concentrating on the U.S. Senate runoff in Georgia on January 5.

You can send warm items — hats, mittens, scarves, bandanas, blankets — and masks to the following addresses:

Revival Yarns
Attn: @warmtheline
297 Prince Ave, Ste 17
Athens, GA 30601

The Craftivist
Attn: @warmtheline
743 Edgewood Ave NE
Atlanta, GA 30307

Fuzzy Goat Yarns
223 W. Jackson St.
Thomasville, GA 31792

You can also support this effort by purchasing clothing and accessories with the Georgia Peach logo from DKGraham. Click the Visit This Shop button to see our Spreadshirt store.

Warm the Line

This November, many of us are hoping for a record turnout at the voting polls. While many will vote by mail, I suspect there will still be those whose lives have been so upturned by this pandemic that they will be standing in long cold lines on November 3. The longest lines may be in those cold swing states where neighborhood polling places have been removed. We are crafters — knitters, crocheters, sewists — making items to send to voters who may be in need of warm accessories to make standing in line bearable. Please see project details on our Instagram account or the, #warmtheline hashtag.
