are creating items for Knitted Knockers, Gaudenzia, Pinnacle Health Harrisburg, and our MPC Tree of Warmth.  In 2017, we contributed 88 items included hats, scarves, mittens/gloves, preemie hats and blankets, newborn hats booties and blankets, toddler hats and blankets, cancer patient hats and prostheses, and quilts.

JOY! Stitchers meet monthly on the third Monday for care and share time for ideas, patterns and work time. Two meeting times are available every month for your convenience – 9 am or 7 pm at the McVittys’ residence.

I do not have a supply of recommended Knots of Love yarns, or Knitted Knocker cottons.

If you wish to knit or crochet cancer caps, please reference the Knots of Love organization home page.  Check their downloadable list of approved yarns, and knit and crochet patterns.  Our group does not submit our products through the Knots of Love organization, but directly to Pinnacle or cancer centers. 

If you wish to knit or crochet Knitted Knockers, please reference the Knitted Knockers home page  to learn about the organization.  Check their downloadable knitting pattern, the crocheting pattern, approved cottons, as well as helpful tutorial videos.

Contact Gail McVitty with questions and for directions – 717-884-1018.
