Our Charities & a special message

The Stitch & Bitch of Westchester County is proud to participate, year-round, in several charity projects. Your participation allows us to donate to a number of causes, in our community.

Donated Acrylic yarn is often used for our charity projects. We look forward to and appreciate yarn donations from you, and the local community. All items should be made with Acrylic yarn, soft baby yarn, for hats.

You may use any pattern you like.

List of our Charity Projects:

 Preemie Hats & Blankets – benefiting the Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital. Hats preemie size, and blankets: 8″x11″ and 8.5″x14″. Susan W collects these.

Warm Hats – Newborn baby hats for White Plains Hospital. Newborn size for boys/girls. Lois collects these.

Our Lucille Project (in memory of our beloved member, Lucille Subbiando). – Hats, scarves, gloves, cowls go to a local family shelter (The Coachmen). Items for children and adult size men/women. Dahlia collects these.
