This is a tender and much needed charity project!

Every year countless members of our communities are entering into therapies for Cancer treatment. We are coordinating our efforts with IHC Cancer Care Centers.

We all know someone who has undergone, or will begin treatment.

Let's offer comfort to them in the best way we can... by making handmade items! 

Our mission this year is to help those starting or continuing

Chemotherapy, Radiation or heading to their many appointments!

We want to provide items of comfort, like: Port Pillows, Rice Bags, Quilts, Gas Cards,

or other items listed below.


We challenge each attendee to make at least 2 port pillows or 2 rice bags and turn them in during the retreat. There are several patterns on the internet. You will find links below with patterns and videos of how to easily put them together.

We will be spending time on Wednesday evening working on some extra pillows and rice bags.

Fabric, velco, fiber fill, rice, will be cut and ready to finish up!

We will also be gathering other items that are much needed!

Here’s some additional things to consider donating:

Gas Cards

(some drive extremely far for treatment and that get's very expensive)

Hand Lotion

Word Search or Sudoku Puzzles or other brain games books

Note Books/Pens

Soft Toothbrushes/Toothpaste

Fleece Lap Blankets

Soft Gloves or Socks

How about doing something fun with all those orphan blocks?

Would you consider using your orphan blocks

(the one's you made extra of to try out a technique or maybe because you lost count :))

and creating a lap quilt to donate?

Or do you have any extra

quilts lying around?

We will be collecting finished quilts too! They are in dire need of blankets and quilts.
