ORGANIZATION: HealthONE Hospice and Family Care

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 15 people are interested

Do you love to sew? How about using your sewing talents to sew walker bags, stylish bibs, busy blankets, or hand carrots or afghans or prayer shawls? You can also knit or crochet hats and gloves for residents who have a hard time staying warm. OR what would you like to sew for patients? Contact me and we'll talk--

We’ll provide you with patterns, and you’ll make a positive difference in the lives of patients! Busy blankets help calm those with Alzheimer’s or dementia. Hand carrots help those with painful contractures in their hands. Afghans and shawls will remind patients that someone loves them enough to create a beautiful and functional piece for them.

Contact me for more information and please share this with any sew-and-sew you know.
