Each November, we collect hand knit hats to give to local teens in crisis via the Tumbleweed Organization. Tumbleweed reports that they have a big basket of hats for the kids to search through and it gets multiple visits each day.
We also donate to numerous community fundraisers and hold occasional raffle drawings to support area non-profits: Big Sky State Games, Family Services, and Riverstone Health thus far. Yarn Bar LLC is proud to be a sustaining member of Yellowstone Public Radio.
We also knit knockers for the fabulous non-profit Knitted Knockers. To date we have sent 500 knockers to them! Thousands of requests every month are received for these comfortable and lightweight prostheses from people who undergo mastectomy surgeries. We are happy to give 50% off on 2 balls per month of Knockers-Approved yarn, . The Knitted Knockers website has all kinds of information, including PATTERNS for making knockers. Please click on the logo to get to their site. Our favorite pattern is the top-down, double point needle one. KnittedKnockers.org. Return knockers to us and we’ll get them ready to send off.
