Fashioning the New England Family

Kickstarter

Thanks to everyone who contributed to our Kickstarter campaign!

We surpassed our $15,000 goal in our February 2018 Kickstarter campaign. Kickstarter is a funding platform for creative projects. Everything from films, games, and music to art, design, and technology. Kickstarter is full of ambitious, innovative, and imaginative ideas that are brought to life through the direct support of others. The publication is a natural fit for both the Kickstarter community and the Society's mission to make this project as widely accessible as possible. Funding on Kickstarter is all-or-nothing so we are thankful to the Kickstarter community for making this project a reality.
