Announcement   The Knitfit's mission is to provide a safe, kind, and welcoming environment for people of all ages, cultures, and abilities, to gather and engage in creative projects that inspire interaction and promote community.
Connect. knitfit has always been about embracing interaction and encouraging exchange. The concept first began when founder/owner Debbie Carty was searching for a fun and non-competitive way to help her daughter with cerebral palsy connect with classmates. Debbie's answer would be found in her passion for crafting, and she offered families free knitting lessons and pizza in the safety and comfort of her backyard.
Debbie soon recognized a winning combination as a tight-knit group of participants emerged; one of varied ages, backgrounds and abilities, yet each fully engaged in respectful interaction while exploring artistic expression.
Create. What began as a simple and intimate backyard knitting circle has now evolved to a successful destination store front and online craft supply business that points far beyond knitting needles. Knitfit offers an emotionally healthy atmosphere with a physically diverse menu of fun activities. Visitors choose from art mediums such as paint, clay, wood, ceramic, paper, fabric and even food. Creativity abounds through individual drop in options, educational projects, themed birthday parties, specialty crafts classes and even free events to assure accessibility to all. True to her backyard core values, the Knitfit' studio remains a safe, fun, and multi-generational venue that uses art to enliven the senses and nurture the human spirit.
Community. Knitfit believes that gathering people for creative expression builds a tight-knit and conscious-fit community. Through providing an environment where engagement, conversation, sharing and caring are of paramount importance, the Knitfit experience strives to make a positive contribution to community. This safe, social playground is achieved not only through outreach programs with area libraries, hospitals, and summer camps that are designed to share the company mission in the community. Developing positive collaborations with like-minded business and non-profit partners is an on-going priority.Knitfit recognizes that in a complex world of ever-changing technologies, social media options and peer pressures, the simplicity of the age old art of connecting to create community has limitless inherent values.

We ship Monday thru Friday and most items will ship withing 48 hours.

About

We are Creating Safe Social Playgrounds Everywhere We Go!

Knitfit began out of my home in 2003. We have a disabled daughter that needed a chance to make a friend.Taylor is physically disabled and could not keep up with her soccer playing peers. I had a thought that if I invited them over for a Free knitting lesson, Taylor could have the chance to help me teach...Especially since you can't Run and Knit.
As Our knitting circle grew in popularity, we began to realize that everyone has special needs and that the crafting conversation circle was therapeutic for all involved.
Knitfit is really about helping other's get started in crafting with Fun Bright Colors and to represent in our stores a place that is safe, appropriate, and accepting at all times.It is a place that people can Create their own happiness. Knitfit is a place to Play!
