Tiny Toppers Knitting

Our holiday gathering is on Wednesday, December 5th from 12 pm to 3 pm at Mary Kull’s, 109 Maple St., Summit.  Experienced knitters always welcome! Beginners are welcome! Non-knitters and friends are welcome!  Bring a friend and learn to knit or just come to talk and eat! Supplies will be provided if needed. RSVP using the sign up below.


 Join us as we come together to knit adorable baby hats, or tiny toppers, for babies in need. We welcome beginning knitters (we’ll teach you!), as well as seasoned knitters who want to join us for an enjoyable get together! You will be notified of any upcoming events. Tiny Toppers are included in our layettes and given to babies at the free pediatric clinics at Overlook and Morristown hospitals.  We also donate baby hats to social service agencies such as Birthhaven, a home for single mothers, as needed.  For more information, contact Cynthia Tarantino at or 908-273-0046.
