We need your help with â€˜Sharing our Mission?
If you would like to participate with us, we will be making blankets and baby blankets to donate to an organization in need. We have identified several worthwhile organizations that shelter abused women and children. They are very much in need of warm clothing and blankets especially during the cold winter months. We are taking donations of knitted squares knit with any washable, new yarn. If everyone who reads this, would spare a little bit of time and knit a square, we can create many blankets to give, and that would be awesome!!
square ideasâ€¦thanks to Faith (pattern washcloths)
You may use whatever yarn that you would like to â€˜use upâ€™, and it can have several different yarns within the knitted square. We will start with squares that are aprox 12â€³ X 12â€³. If you would take an hour and clear out some old yarn scraps and knit up a square, we would really appreciate the effort. If anyone has the time to take 12 squares and sew them together, we will send a packet of the knitted pieces to you. We would then mail the finished blankets with recognition of the knitters to the recipients.
Send squares to:

Check out our Mission to see our current long term projects.
Our mission involves assisting womenâ€™s relief groups with knitting boards and personal instruction. Our goal is to see these individuals grow in self belief that they, too, can create beautiful, useful, warm garments for themselves, their families, and as a means to supplement their family income.
Jail assistance project knitting for preemie newborns at UVA hospital
Our focus on this project has been abused women and their children and babies of low to zero income working as a community or within a shelter. This will be from an organized program.
It is our goal to assist these groups with donated knitting boards, instruction, and support from us at Authentic Knitting Board Co. Individual groups or organizations may apply for this program by contacting Pat Novak at firstname.lastname@example.org.
