Fashion-Related Things To Do During The COVID-19 Quarantine: Idea #1- Learn A New Skill

Updated: Jun 15, 2020

While you're home during The COVID-19 Quarantine, use this time to learn a new fashion-related skill from Fashion Designer Abi Ferrin through her virtual scarf making classes.

Join Dallas Designer Abi Ferrin via Facebook Live or Zoom for one of her Virtual Mariposa Scarf Making Classes. You'll have a shared opportunity to learn a new skill and to help others - 100% of the proceeds from the sale of Abi's DIY scarf kits benefit survivors of domestic violence and human trafficking through her non-profit organization, Love & Freedom.


  • $100 Shopping Credit - to vie for a chance to win a $100 shopping credit toward your next purchase from Abi's website, 'like,' 'follow' and tag two friends on her social media accounts - Instagram and Facebook.

  • FREE Scarf DIY Kit - to enter for a chance to win one of FIVE scarf making kits AND (virtually) join me for the next class (this Wednesday at 4 p.m.), leave your name in the comment section below.

To join a class, simply following these steps:

Step 1: Purchase a DIY Mariposa Scarf Kit (unless you're one of the lucky winners*).

Step 2: Sign up via Abi's Facebook Event Page.

  • Wednesday, April 8th at 4 p.m.

  • Saturday, April 11th at 3 p.m.

  • Wednesday, April 15th at 5 p.m. (Happy Hour)

  • If you prefer to make one on your own, the kit comes with detailed instructions.

Step 3: (Optional) Join or create a Zoom Circle

If you want to join my Zoom Circle this Wednesday, April 8th at 4 p.m., let me know by following this link. You're more than welcome to join me, even if you don't win a free kit. Or, create your own circle by inviting friends, co-workers or anyone else who may enjoy a little creativity and companionship.

In addition to the classes listed above, Abi is offering groups of 8 or more - families, friends, colleagues - an opportunity to book a private Zoom circle with her. She's found that this experience 'cultivates connections' and firmly believes 'the scarf making process is both calming and therapeutic.'

If, however, you're enjoying your solitude and not feeling crafty, you may want to take advantage of Abi's incredible sale - everything on her website is 50% off. Here are some of my favorite looks.
