The work of Project Knitwell helps people facing challenges learn to knit for wellness, comfort, and community. Your support will help Project Knitwell work towards our common goal: to help create healthier communities. Our primary mission is to help people facing challenges by providing knitting instruction and shared community opportunities that promote wellness and resilience.

In the first six months of 2022, Project Knitwell conducted 526 instructional sessions with individuals experiencing stressful situations such as: cancer patients and their families, nurses and other caregivers, at-risk teens, refugees, teachers, and those affected by homelessness or reentering the community after incarceration. We recently expanded to support new knitters at the USO at Fort Belvoir to help those in the armed forces and family members of deployed and wounded warriors. You can help us to reach more individuals — in local hospitals, community organizations, schools, and other sites, as well as through our Knitwell in the Cloud virtual programs available worldwide.

To continue and expand Project Knitwell’s impact, we are celebrating Project Knitwell’s 12th Birthday by kicking off our Network for Good Auction on October 7, 2022.
