♥Hearts for Hospice♥
Hearts for Hospice is a wonderful philanthropic project run by the members of the Greater Kansas City Needlepoint Guild. This project was initiated in 2015 to fulfill a need at a local hospice center.
- When a resident passes away, a heart is placed on the door notifying others to be respectful of those mourning. The family of the resident can then take the heart home.
- The beautiful needlepoint heart becomes a cherished remembrance, bringing peace to the recipient.
Within three years, over 1400 hearts have been delivered to three Greater Kansas City hospice centers, including a pediatric care center.
Needlepoint hearts are the most beloved.
To participate, you just stitch a heart and then ship it to Sue Hart - the Greater Kansas City Needlepoint Guild takes care of the finishing! Dig into your thread stash and stitch your heart in any color or pattern you choose - there are no guidelines that must be followed.
Needlepoint Destashing is happy to offer a free blank canvas with a printed heart outline to any order placed with us! There is an option to add this to your order before checkout. The free heart canvas offered is on an 8" x 8" square of 18 mesh. The heart measures 4.75" x 4.75".
