In the spirit of the “Humans of New York” photo series and social media phenomenon, Do Space is inspired to work with staff and volunteers to create a “Humans of Do Space” series that shares the stories of our members, volunteers, users and staff. The goal of this effort it to capture the people that are using the space and how it affects their lives. What does it allow them to do? What does it allow them to make? How are people using the space to overcome obstacles and get things done?

Danielle Pardy is a member of the Omaha Weaver’s and Spinners Guild, an impromptu group that sometimes comes to Do Space to weave and spin. Danielle owns her own yarn business, onetwistedtree.com. The other members of the group include Ilene, a pharmacist, Tina, who works in IT, and Carey, a stay-at-home mom.

What are you passionate about?

“Spinning and weaving, and little furry things that make yarn for us, such as llamas, rabbits, rams and sheep”

What Do Space mean to you?

“Do Space is located centrally and there’s coffee close by”
