How you can get involved

WomenHeart welcomes the participation of everyone interested in making scarves for HeartScarves. The HeartScarves program has grown to impact thousands of women annually, but we have the capacity to impact thousands more by increasing the production of scarves. WomenHeart is calling on you to help us reach our goal of increasing the number of women we support through this valuable program.

You do not have to be a WomenHeart Champion or a WomenHeart Support Network Coordinator to participate. Here’s how you can get involved:

  • Make a scarf.  If you knit, sew, crochet or weave, you’ll easily come up with ideas for scarves.   You can choose the pattern – all we ask is that you use a soft yarn in any shade of red.  Once completed, please add your own personal note for the recipient (click here for a personalized note card) and mail your scarf to WomenHeart’s distribution center in North Carolina (click here for mailing label).
  • Reach out to others. The HeartScarves program collects scarves from local knitters, weavers and other crafters. Take a few moments to reach out to local craft groups in your community and tell them about this great program and how they can get involved. Many communities have knitters’ guilds, hand weaving guilds, knitting classes at churches, senior centers and yarn shops.  We have found these groups to be very generous and supportive of HeartScarves projects.  Tell them about WomenHeart.  If you’re interested in participating in this outreach, contact us for further information at outreach@womenheart.org
  • Spread the word about WomenHeart and the HeartScarves program by forwarding an email to 10 of your friends and inviting them to get involved. Click here for template.
  • Join the conversation. Be a part of this movement. Join our HeartScarves Facebook page! You can connect with HeartScarves supporters across the country to discuss ideas, share your work by posting pictures, and get direct access to WomenHeart Champions who distribute HeartScarves in local hospitals and communities across the nation.
  • Looking for patterns? Check out WomenHeart's HeartScarves pinboard on Pinterest, where we post links to interesting knitting and crochet patterns.
