The Boquete Knitters and Quilters is a tri-cultural (we have ex-pat, Latina Panamanian and Ngabe-Bugle Panamanian members), tri-craftual (we have knitters, crocheters and quilters) organization that creates baby quilts, blankets, caps, sweaters and booties for our neediest, tiniest neighbors.  We also supply chemo caps to the Obaldia Hospital in David, as well as donate finished items to their newborn nursery.

We are so grateful when people tuck yarn into a suitcase and bring it down for our use.  We especially love Lion Brand Homespun, Lion Brand Pound of Love, Red Heart Soft and Caron Simply Soft, but we have thus far managed to use virtually very yard of yarn we've been given -- even unraveling worn out afghans for the yarn!  The yarns we prefer are available at WalMart, Joann, Michael's, and Hobby Lobby, and are acrylic -- strong enough to be beaten on a rock in the river.

We also have a Paypal account: BoqueteKnitters@hotmail.com.  Every nickel we raise goes toward the purchase of yarn, batting, fabric, thread, buttons and bindings.  And every finished product keeps a child wrapped in soft warmth -- and our love.

We invite you to drop by the Fundacion pro Integracion (Handicap Foundation) in Alto Boquete where we meet, to see us at work and to admire our work.  Every Friday afternoon between 1 and 3 PM.
