HEART PILLOW WORKING BEE OPEN HOUSE
We are starting another round of work on the From the Heart Pillow Project. We will be cutting out, sewing and stuffing pillows and (NEW!) drainage bottle bags that will be donated to breast cancer patients at the Helios Klinik Mariahilf in Harburg.
When placed under the arm, these pillows help alleviate pain due to surgery and other procedures. In addition to the heart pillows, we have been asked to make drainage bags with straps.
The drainage bottle bags allow the patient to walk the halls and out in public more comfortably.
This is an open house event, so come when you can and stay as long as you can.
If you enjoy being crafty in a group and need to get your charity fix, come join us on October 15th!
Bring your sewing machines – I can fit up to four on my table, needles, thread, scissors, any 100% cotton fabric you would like to donate, a snack or drink, and a smile.
The AWCH has donated over 200 pillows to various hospitals in the Hamburg area. Help us continue this good work.
