OURSTORY

Madhatter Knits was founded in 2014 in Los Angeles, California by Christie Huang, Kathryn Huang, Tiffany Chang, and Kimberly Chang.

The inspiration to establish Madhatter Knits sparked when Tiffany Chang's fourth grade teacher, Mrs. Halferty taught Tiffany the art of knitting every recess. Tiffany was so thrilled on acquiring how to knit a hat on her own that the very next day, she proudly demonstrated it to her sister, Kimberly and her two cousins, Christie and Kathryn Huang. Christie Huang, who was volunteering at the San Gabriel Medical Center, had just visited the NICU around the same time Tiffany was learning how to knit. Tiffany's first trial gave them the inspiration for the founding idea of the organization. It was the perfect size for a preemies head! Each of them committed to knit hats from that summer on and made their first donation of 160 knit hats Christmas of 2014 to the Children's Hospital Los Angeles. With the mission to give preemies and their families love, warmth, and support, Madhatter Knits was born.

The hats were so well received that the girls decided to make something more out of it.  All four of them decided to create Madhatter Knits to invite and train volunteers to knit hats for preemies. The Executive Team was soon established.  Each of our inspired individuals from our Executive Team all began to grow a network of devoted volunteers together to help make a difference for premature infants and foster support to their families in feeling their love, warmth and comfort during their difficult times.  Madhatter Knits hopes to give the gift of hope for parents, as milestones for growth, or as remembrances of knitting their love to tiny beginnings.
