Event's DetailsCalling all knitters and crocheters with big hearts!
The Tuckerton Seaport and Baymen’s Museum is helping The American Heart Association and The Children's Heart Foundation in their effort to create tiny red hats for babies. The project helps spread awareness about congenital heart defects and disease — which affect about 40,000 babies born in the country each year.
Drop by the Hunting Shanty at the Seaport to knit or crochet a tiny red any 2nd Wednesday of the month. Needles, yarn, patterns, and hands-on help are provided. The Seaport is also accepting donations of red yarn and other knitting supplies to keep the project going throughout the year. The more hats we collect, the more babies we can share them with!
If you are unable to come to a drop-in knitting session, grab a pattern and make some tiny hats at home. Drop it off in the Seaport collection bin anytime. You can find sample patterns on their website at the bottom of this page: http://www.heart.org/HEARTORG/Affiliate/Little-Hats-Big-Hearts_UCM_487734_SubHomePage.jsp
The hats will be collected through November 1st 2018 when they will be sent to the American Heart Association. Come February, the cute accessories are handed out to infants in hospitals in our local area and across more than 40 states.
Whether you are a seasoned crafter or you are looking for a way to learn knitting and/or crocheting, your help is needed to spread heart health awareness…and cuteness to newborn babies everywhere.
