Since our founding in June 2006, we have delivered requested handmade items to more than 172,411 people living in communities across the United States and 80 countries around the world.
This work is possible thanks to thousands of individuals who create the items independently and in groups called Peace Pods; more than 4,050 volunteer delivery partners; and hundreds of financial supporters just like YOU!
Peace Pods have “sprouted” in a variety of settings: libraries, churches, synagogues, community centers, and private homes.
Peace Pods are groups of knitters and crocheters who actively support the work and mission of Knitting4Peace.
Delivering our items is an experience that can be powerful beyond description, and will change your perspective on the world.
Knitting4Peace harnesses the power of love through compassionate creative action that invites, involves, and serves all women, children, and families in our own communities and countries around the world.
We respond to need in the communities we serve. These items are frequently requested by those who receive them.
Here is the list for quick reference:
Warm Winter Scarves, 6" wide, 48" or longer, cowls
MITTENS (sizes for children and adults)

Due to a change in various organization's needs we no longer need fashion scarves at this time, but can always use winter scarves.
We also have an abundance of quilted sleeping mats.
We're actively seeking new delivery partners who can use lightweight narrower scarves, cotton washcloths, and/or quilted sleeping mats.
Please contact [email protected] if you know of an organization or ministry that serves people who could use these items.
We also need and welcome financial support to ship these items.
Our widespread community also includes thousands of women, children, and families in local and global areas of conflict who receive our items of hope, healing, and peace.
We welcome any one and every one interested in crafting peace & justice through non-violent compassionate action. You can join us by knitting, crocheting, weaving, or quilting on your own.
We publish a newsletter once a month, packed with news stories that we are inspired to share with you.
Please include your name and e-mail to receive an acknowledgment of your shipment and a receipt.
