Knitting and Crochet Charities in Charlotte, NC

Hello my fellow Charlotteans! For the past 6 years, I've been knitting and crocheting for charity. Most of my creations have gone to other parts of the US. In fact, some of them have gone to the other side of the world! I decided to search the internet, and find local needs in the Charlotte area that I could fulfill with my knitting and crochet talents. I was able to find a few places that need what I can provide, and made a spreadsheet to help me remember them all.

In addition to knit and crochet needs, I found some locations that requested sewn items as well, so I included them on my list also.

After doing all that work (it took several hours of searching and clicking), I thought it would be cool to post my list on the internet, so others could see it also.

I will do my best to keep it up to date and organized. If you know of any other Charlotte area locations that need our creations, please let me know by posting a comment here on the blog.

Here they are, listed in alphabetical order:
