Do you sew? Would you like to help hospice patients but aren’t ready to venture into facilities where patients live? How about using your sewing talent to sew 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.

We’ll provide you with patterns, and you’ll make a positive difference in the lives of patients! Busy blankets help stimulate 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.
