Do you love to sew? If so, here is a wonderful and rewarding project for your talents. You can sew a memory bear for a hospice patient's family. Each bear is created with the patient in mind. You’ll create that patient’s unique bear from the material of clothing once worn by the patient.

All materials are provided by Cornerstone Hospice except the sewing machine and thread.
