Why Knitted Knockers?
Knitted Knockers was founded by one courageous woman after hearing the diagnosis that so many women fear – breast cancer. When Barb was unable to have reconstructive surgery, she found herself turning to fiber arts to feel “whole” again. Little did she know that this was the start of a new journey; a journey allowing her and a team of volunteers to help so many women.
I’m joined by, Barb Demorest, the amazing woman behind Knitted Knockers.
