Of you can mail them to XRX, Inc. by February 1, 2016 at the address below. Please include a note with your knit or crochet knocker(s) with your name and address.

If you have the yarn you want to work with, that’s great, but please remember that knockers need to be made of soft, washable, non-wool and of either sport, or DK weight. Our Valley Yarns Longmeadow is a great option! If you’re looking for patterns or technique videos to get you started, you can find those on the Knitted Knockers ‘Make a Knocker’ page.
