Why Apple Yarns is a KnittedKnockers.org Sponsor
Posted: Aug 15 2019
We love KnittedKnockers.org! They are 100% volunteer-based with the most beautiful and giving people that we have the honor of seeing weekly at two different events at Apple Yarns.
Everyone is welcome; on Wednesday's we host the fixer's, stuffer's and shippers and on Friday we have knitter's and crocheters that craft the hand knit/crochet breast prostheses. In 2017, 28,000 knockers were sent out and in 2018, 33,000 were sent out. The mail for KnittedKnockers.org arrives at Apple Yarns, so it's like Christmas every day here.
These are two of many testimonials that say it all . . .
Today, I went for my annual Mammogram and noticed a basket of hand made breasts, curious I picked one up and thought I would try it in my bra. WOW! after almost twelve years of feeling ugly and having one breast three inches smaller than the other because of Cancer I can now look in the mirror and not feel ugly. Thank you to Rachael for knitting my new lovely breast prosthetic. I am over the moon.
