The goal of Tête-à-Tête Hats is to provide handmade hats free of charge to chemotherapy patients, hospitalized infants and children, and others in need of head coverings.

If you have received one of my hats, please email me at tete.a.tete.hats@gmail.com to let me know if you are enjoying it! If you know if someone who needs a hat, please email me.

You can also leave me comments on this blog.
Just sign my guestbook by clicking on the pink "post" button and follow the directions.

I would also love a photo of you wearing your new hat if you would like to share one.

I welcome your contributions! If you would like to make a yarn or hat donation, please email me or leave a note in the guestbook. I am happy to make sure that your donation finds a home with someone in need.

Back to School

Today was the first day of the new school year. Jay is home from Hawaii and she dropped off some wonderful hats (Thanks Jay!!) while I was at school. She has a new flower design that takes her an entire day to knit. Yes...That's an entire day just for the flower! Here it is...

September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

There is a group of 46 mothers of kids with cancer, who are getting their heads shaved on September 7 to raise awareness for childhood cancer. The number is 46 because 46 children are diagnosed with cancer every day in the United States.

I am working on knitting/collecting hats for the moms and the kids. I just found out about this event, so I'm asking for help. If you are interested in donating a hat or hats or in knitting/crocheting to help out, please email me at sgerber@san.rr.com. My mom will forward the messages to me and I will work out the details.

You can also donate to support cancer research on their site at: http://46mommas.com/

Thanks for your support!
