Hearts for Hospice

Hearts for Hospice was initiated in 2015 by the Greater Kansas City Needlepoint Guild to fulfill a need a local Hospice center. When a resident passes, a stitched heart is placed on the door which notifies those passing by to be respectful of friends and family in mourning. The embroidered heart is then given to a family member so it may become a cherished remembrance. In November of 2019, the guild reported that they had donated over 1,400 hearts, from 26 states, to three local Hospice Houses and one of which is a children's home.

Each chapter is asked to participate in the Hearts for Hospice project by embroidering and finishing ornaments for donation to a Hospice near you. Continue reading ...
