Entrenador de Community Streamer

♛♖♙🎉😊 I'm Lauren Goodkind, an initial Guinness Book of World Records holder, a chess teacher, chess book author, and chess  Twitch streamer based in California! 

My mission is to promote chess  on a bigger level.  I am currently making North America's longest crochet scarf to 500 feet.  At the time of this writing, the black and white scarf is about 492.5 feet long which just  officially broke the initial Guiness Book of World Records for the longest crochet scarf by an individual!   For your info, the initial Guiness Book of World Record is 492.13 feet long.  Once completed, I want the scarf to be displayed publicly, to inspire others to play chess and to spread positive energy!  

Be part of this epic journey!  Does your company or organization want to display my scarf? Please let me know! Thanks in advance.
