2) Quilts - (Sewn) 

  • Fabrics for any patient to offer comfort in Hospice. These will be used during care and placed over them for walk-out then presented to the family to take home. ​

  • A variety of fabrics for all genders and interests are appreciated. Nurses pick out just the right quilt for the right patient. 

  • Sewn Quilts Only.

  • Approximate Lapghan size 36x48"; perfect for folks resting in bed or sitting in a chair.

3) Wheelchair Warmer Blanket -  Made from fleece and quilting cotton blanket with a kangaroo pocket has cut outs at the bottom to prevent it from getting caught in the wheels. These can be made in any colors you like. They do not need to be Patriotic (but can be if you want). These will be offered to all patients in Hospice and Palliative care. 

 

4) Dignity Covers & Scarves - These are worn so patients can eat and keep their clothes clean yet not feel as if they are wearing a bib. 

  • 2 patterns has been requested: Dignity Scarf and Dignity Cover from Upcycled Shirt (flannel or otherwise)

  • For all genders. 

5) Twiddle Muffs -knit/crochet Twiddle muffs are wonderful at providing a comforting sensory experience. Patients will redirect their fidgeting to the muff. 

6) Wheelchair Shawl - This easy to knit or crochet shawl helps take the chill off of someone as they sit in a wheelchair. It is perfectly shaped to stay on the shoulders. 

🇺🇸 Items for Veterans- When you tally your item, please indicate on the tally sheet that it is an item for a Veteran so we can keep track of how many Veteran themed items they have received. Thank you.
