go dotty go began as a simple, homemade Christmas gift, and has grown into an eclectic line of clothing accessories and decor items. It started with an experiment (what can I make with some old wool sweaters?), that ended up as a really cute scarf. The scarf led to Hand Hotties and Coffee Cardigans...and then spiraled out of control.
Today, go dotty go makes not only wool winter scarves, fingerless gloves and coffee cozies, but also hot pads, brooches, Christmas garland, keyhole scarves, t-shirt infinity scarves and wine sleeves.
All items are still made from repurposed sweaters and t-shirts, and still hand made in our home studio. We use as much of the material as possible, and the remaining material scraps are used by our kids to make dog beds for the local animal shelter.

Jay’s journey into storytelling began on the road from Kathmandu to Cusco, where he found a passion for sharing stories, person to person, with those he met along the way.
Jay’s travels took him to San Francisco in 1995, where he dove into digital storytelling, helping found Learn2.com, which Yahoo called ‘The Most Useful Site on the Web.’ In the years to come, Jay would create animated stories for clients such as Levi Strauss, Participant Media and NRDC, including some of the first major label music videos and viral videos driving action around social issues.
Then one morning, as Jay rushed out the door on a deadline, his three-year old son stopped him. “Daddy,” he said, “Do you love what you do?” Right then, frozen in the moment, Jay realized he had in fact left behind what he truly loved: sharing stories, person to person, with those he met along the way. And so Jay co-founded Wakingstar, whose mission is to craft stories that shape the world.

Govero lost her mom when she was seven and never knew her dad. At once this little girl turned adult and was in charge of the little family nucleus of her little brother and blind grandmother. She had to drop out of school and beg for work, getting a bowl of peanuts a day.
At the age of 12, she learned how to farm mushrooms on leaves, cut grass, water hyacinth, pulp and dead tree branches, converting biomass into food. Govero appeared to have golden fingers and had the chance assist her adoptive mom in the tissue culture lab learning how to propagate mushrooms.
Equipped with field experience and the science, Govero simplified mushroom farming for villagers, in general, and girls at risk in particular. She is spearheading the program Orphan Teaches Orphans, providing food security through the Pulp to Protein Initiative of the ZERI Foundation.
