Knitted Knockers Background:
As many of you know, Knitted Knockers Charities, working in partnership with Tempe Yarn, coordinates the collection and free distribution of Knitted Knockers to breast cancer survivors who have had mastectomies.
This is all made possible thanks to our Arizona core team of volunteers and to the knitters across America (with several large groups in Arizona), who make and donate knitted knockers. Knitted Knocker Charities has given away over 12,000 Knitted Knockers to women across America.
When you make a Knitted Knocker, you change your life by giving a gift to a women recovering from breast cancer who you will never meet. You change their live by helping them feel better about who they are after a life-changing mastectomy.
