Hello, Jenna here! I've worked closely with Alyssa and Jon here at Penguin & Fish for almost 3 years and am so excited about the new addition to our team. I've been working on a plan...

I feel like the ABC quilt that Alyssa has been making on her nightly Livestreams should stay with her for the new baby. So, instead of auctioning the quilt off when it's finished, I thought we could collect donations for the Minneapolis Crisis Nursey on behalf of Baby Thomas. Then the quilt, with all of its memories and meaning, will be a baby gift from the Penguin & Fish Family!

To donate, add this $5 listing to your cart. Then, update the quantity to the amount you'd like to give (Qty 2 = $10; Qty 6 = $30, etc.)

**Note: These donations will not be tax-deductible. If you'd like to place a tax-deductible donation, you may do so directly on the Minneapolis Crisis Nursery website. Email us at to let us know you donated! 


Here's a little more about the backstory of this idea:

When we started the ABC Stitch Along a year ago, we hoped to raise money for a local charity. We chose the Minneapolis Crisis Nursery because of its mission to "end child abuse and neglect and create strong, healthy families." This was an important cause to us, and the ABC quilt was perfect to honor this organization.

We were also very excited to finally stitch all of the ABC characters Live! Surprisingly, Alyssa has never stitched these characters on a Livestream in the almost 10 years they've been around. It was a great way to remember the little animals that started Penguin & Fish all those years ago. 

Once I found out Alyssa was pregnant, watching the ABC Quilt come together took on a new perspective. This is when I began scheming - how can keep this blanky at home for Baby Thomas and still support the Crisis Nursery?


I knew our amazing Penguin & Fish Family would feel similarly. So, I presented the idea to Alyssa and Jon (because let's be real, I don't think I'd be able to keep all of this quiet from them) and they loved the idea. It's a special quilt for so many reasons and it only seems appropriate for it to be a gift from all of us! 

So, whether you've tuned in for the ABC Stitch Along or not, I'd love for you to be a part of this sweet gift. Any questions can be sent to

I’ve followed Alyssa for several years now and participated in the Koala charity quilt which was fun and wonderful. I’ll always credit her for the pinch method of threading a needle which changed my experience 😂. She’s a lovely soul and I’m super excited she is pregnant 💕
