Big Hats, Little Hearts

February is American Heart Month!  Our Savvy Stitchers supported the American Heart Association’s Little Hats, Big Hearts project by knitting red hats to be given to babies born in February at participating hospitals.  This project raises awareness about heart disease, the number one killer of Americans, and congenital heart defects, the most common type of birth defect in the country. Thank you, Savvy Stitchers!
