The internet steps up to help save mom’s knitting business

Sometimes you just need a little help from the internet.

Martyn Hett, a 28-year-old from Manchester, England, saved his mother’s knitting business with a boost from the kind-hearted people of Twitter.

On Nov. 26, Hett tweeted a devastating picture that his mother, Figen Murray, sent him from a craft fair.

This wasn’t the first time Murray attempted to sell her products.

After posting the photo on Twitter, Hett found that his mother actually had her very own, very full online shop on the website Depop.

Once Hett tweeted about his mother’s shop, Imperfect Hearts, his friend came through as Murray’s knight in shining armor.

He became her very first customer by purchasing this adorable “Glove Monster.”

At the same time, kind hearts of Twitter began flooding the shop with more purchases.

As Hett’s tweets kept gaining traction, his mother continued to rack up sales.

Murray’s customers proudly showed support to their new craft queen on Twitter.

And, being a kind queen, Murray got thoroughly prepared to respond.

Though most of her shop is currently sold out, Hett’s mother purchased plenty of new knitting materials, and is preparing for a big restock.

With her newfound success, Murray has decided to donate portions of her earnings to Beacon Counselling, a local charity.

Twitter, sometimes you can be pretty okay.
