♥Hearts for Hospice♥

Hearts for Hospice is a wonderful philanthropic project that was started by members of the Greater Kansas City Needlepoint Guild. This project was initiated in 2015 to fulfill a need at a local hospice center. Since then, it has thrived so beautifully that it has branched out into it's own independent non-profit organization!

  • When a hospice 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. 

A message from Sue Hart in December 2023 reads "we are presently donating 60+ hearts a month to Kansas City local hospice centers.  We also provide patriotic (red, white & blue) hearts to a hospice center that provides at-home hospice care to veterans.  Our way of saying thank you for your service to veterans and their families."

To participate, you just stitch a heart and then ship it to Sue Hart - volunteers at Hearts for Hospice take 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.

Stitched hearts may be mailed to:

Needlepoint Destashing is happy to offer a free blank canvas with a drawn 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 created on different mesh sizes depending on what we have on hand.
