Crafting for a Cause
At Charlotte Yarn our hope is to bring knitters, crocheters and charitable organizations together to support those in our community in need. For this inaugural event we will have a representative from Levine Cancer Institute to provide insight on we can do to make a positive impact on their patients' lives while doing what we love.
There is no fee for the event, but we would like for you to register. By registering, we know who is coming and will be able to supply enough chairs. To register, please click here. Please help us spread the word!
If you have questions or would like to share information about your favorite charity for a future event, contact Hattie (email@example.com) or Remi (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Port Pillow Project
Charlotte Yarn is pleased to initiate the "Port Pillow Project" which will provide knitted and crocheted port pillows for cancer patients. These port pillows will be delivered to the Charlotte Levine Cancer Institute (LCI). We need your help in making these pillows for this worthy cause.
What Is Pillow Port?
Many cancer patients have to endure long grueling hours undergoing chemotherapy administered through a port. Sometimes those ports stay embedded in the chest wall for months at a time. When patients get into a vehicle the seat belt shoulder strap crosses the chest exactly where the port is inserted, often causing discomfort. The port pillow is a small cushion with a strap that fits onto a seat belt so patients can ride with ease
Knitted port pillow pattern (knitted flat): Please click here.
Crochet port pillow pattern: Please click here.
We will soon have available patterns for port pillows knitted in the round We will publish and announce this pattern when it is available.
If you sew, you can also make fabric pillows (pictured above). For the pattern, please click here.
