Story

Club Knitflix began as a weekly virtual knitting club during the covid-19 pandemic as a means of staying connected. While practicing community and crafting, we also paid attention to the violence being inflicted on Black communities by the police, and talked about what we could do to support the Black Lives Matter movement. 

Our idea was to host a virtual Knitathon to raise money for the Black Lives Matter movement. We invite knitters and crafters alike to join us for this 12-hour long event on Saturday August 22nd from 10am-10pm EST, which will be raising funds for The Loveland Foundation, the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, G.L.I.T.S., and Disabled But Not Really.

This Knitathon is an event organized by allies and is meant to be a space for community, education, and action. We invite you to learn more about the organizations we will be supporting and the Knitathon itself by visiting our website at https://knitathon.wixsite.com/knitathon.
