At Project Knitwell, our mission is to provide opportunities for those facing stressful situations to learn to knit and build resilience at the same time.

Our volunteers contribute more than 700 hours per year to knitting instructional programs and community outreach for groups facing stressful challenges in the DC Metro area. We offer quality materials and all services to our participants free of charge.

In 2022, Project Knitwell distributed more than 500 kits to programs in the DC Metro area, New York, Pennsylvania, and Ohio to promote patient wellness and to prevent compassion fatigue among hospital caretakers and teachers in rural schools.
