Adestrador de Community Streamer

♛♖♙🎉😊 I'm Lauren Goodkind, a chess teacher, puzzle creator, and chess  Twitch streamer based in California! 

My mission is to promote chess in on a bigger level.  I am currently making North America's longest crochet scarf.  At the time of this writing, the black and white scarf is about 454 feet long and is chess themed!  My goal is to make the scarf to be 500 feet in length, which will offcially break the initial Guiness Book of World Records for the longest crochet scarf by an individual!   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.
