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:
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
