Care to Knit has inspired needle workers to meet together in groups. When these groups “click” and find that they have things in common and a workable meeting location, they can petition Care to Knit to become a viable chapter. Usually the groups give themselves a name and assign a chapter coordinator. The chapter coordinator becomes the liaison between Care to Knit and their chapter.

If you have any questions about starting a chapter, or would like to meet with a chapter coordinator – email Betty Volpe,
