We'd like to donate 100 Knockers for distribution in the Bay Area by October and we need your help!
What are Knockers?
From the Knitted Knockers website:
"Knitted Knockers are special handmade breast prosthesis for women who have undergone mastectomies or other procedures to the breast. Traditional breast prosthetics are usually expensive, heavy, sweaty and uncomfortable. They typically require special bras or camisoles with pockets and can't be worn for weeks after surgery. Knitted Knockers on the other hand are soft, comfortable, beautiful and when placed in a regular bra they take the shape and feel of a real breast. Our special volunteer knitters provide these free to those requesting them. Knitted knockers can be adjusted to fill the gap for breasts that are uneven and easily adapted for those going through reconstruction by simply removing some of the stuffing."
To help support our goal of goal of 100 Knockers we are offering a series of "100 Knockers Workshops". During this workshop, our fabulous teacher Judy will help you get started and complete a Knocker. We have classes for both knitted and crocheted knockers.
