Jimmy Beans Wool is leading an initiative, “Stitch Red“, to bring attention to heart disease, the #1 killer of women in the United States. The program is part of a broad campaign to help women understand risk factors and to encourage them to adopt healthier lifestyles for their long-term benefit.
Stitch Red is supported by a majority of manufacturers and vendors in the Needlearts industry who are creating unique “Stitch Red” products for which 5% of gross profits will benefit the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health (FNIH) in support of The Heart TruthÂ®, a national awareness campaign for women about heart disease, sponsored by the US National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute. Additionally, Jimmy Beans Wool has written a book, Knit Red, which features 30 celebrity designers sharing patterns and personal stories and will be released in June of 2012.
