Itty Bitty Witty Knitties is a cottage industry based in Idaho. The knitted swatches and mini-quilts are handmade by a group of about a dozen disabled women who participate in the vocational training programs of Asia Project Grace in Kunming, China. Involvement in these projects has given these women access to education, health care and a living wage.
Each card has a hand-knitted swatch on the front and the sentiment on the front, completed inside.
