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.

Thanks San Diego North Coast Knitters Guild!

Thanks to the San Diego North Coast Knitters Guild, 103 beautiful hand knit hats will be donated to those in need!

Today I had coffee with Linda, who is head of philanthropy for the San Diego North Coast Knitters Guild. It was great to see her again and get to know her a little bit better. She brought 103 hats that will be distributed across the nation by Téte â Téte. Each one of these hats was knit by a kind person who wants to help others and I am grateful for every single hat. The hours that it takes to choose or create a pattern, pick the yarn, carefully knit and finish each hat show that a lot of care goes into each and every hat. I know that the people who receive the hats will be even more grateful than I am for each knitters generous donation of their time and energy.

March 2012

Dear Friends,

It has been a while since I have posted, but I wanted to let you know that the hats are still being produced and donated on a regular basis. My friend Emily and I started a club of students at my school to increase donations because the demand has been so great. The club has not donated any hats yet, but watch future posts for more information. Currently, we are teaching knitting/crochet to students and holding planning meetings.

The number of people with cancer will never cease to amaze me and I am so grateful to be in a position to help in this small way.

Please feel free to contact me if you are in need of a hat or would like to help knit (or donate a a hat or hats) to those in need. The hats are always provided free of charge and shipping is included. I can also provide yarn to anyone who would like to knit or crochet for us.
