Why: Who needs an excuse to get together and craft?! We wanted to get together and spread some fiber love!
In addition to some great crafty vendors, we also have:
- free lessons on knitting, crochet, spinning, and maybe more
- fabulous door prizes to be given away throughout the event (Want to donate a prize? E-mail email@example.com.)
- weather-permitting, a sit and spin/crochet/knit area out on the deck
Admission is FREE!
Paula Ray would like us to collect these for charity. We have a box in the store ready to receive the knockers. We’ve got extra patterns printed for you too They can be knit or crocheted!
Knitted Knockers Charities, Inc. is a non-profit corporation that exists to raiseawareness about Knitted Knockers, provide free patterns for knitters and crocheters to be able to make knockers and help mastectomy patients regain a sense of “self” by getting free Knitted Knockers made by volunteers.
Knitted Knockers are prosthetic breasts for mastectomy patients. When placed in a bra, these knitted breasts take the shape and feel of a real breast. They are lighter and more comfortable than silicone prosthetic breasts. The knitted fabric breathes and prevents the heat rash & discomfort experienced by many women wearing the silicone ones. click here for more info and to download the patterns http://www.knittedknockers.info/
