About Us

Project Knitwell offers knitting as a tool to promote wellness and help people cope with stressful situations at more than a dozen hospital and community settings.

All of Project Knitwell’s programming is provided by volunteers, and services and supplies are provided free of charge to the people we serve. 

Operating in the metro Washington, DC area, Project Knitwell is a 501(c)(3) with ongoing programs for patients, family members, and staff at area hospitals including MedStar Georgetown University Hospital (MGUH), Children’s National Medical Center (CNMC), and Virginia Hospital Center.

We also conduct programs for adults and children at community and school sites. These have included: Smith Center for Healing and the Arts, Borromeo Housing, Friends of Guest House, the John L. Gildner Regional Institute for Children and Adolescents (JLG-RICA), and So Others Might Eat (SOME) among others.

Project Knitwell volunteers provide knitting instruction and quality materials in an effort to foster wellness, comfort, and community among those we serve.
