OUCH POUCH BAGS FOR BREAST CANCER PATIENTS

Myrle Seely…Instructor

Kits will be available.

This “Anti-Ouch Pouch” was designed by Deon Maas and is dedicated to her mother, Doris Lock, who taught her to sew. Both women are breast cancer survivors and members of the American Sewing Guild.This soft pillow is designed to be worn snugly against the underarm area to cushion the area after breast surgery.The wedge shape gently holds the arm away from the body when the user is standing.The strap holds the pillow in place without having to use sore arm muscles to“clutch” it.The strap is adjustable and the fiberfill may be adjusted via the overlapped opening. (BRING FIBERFILL IF YOU HAVE IT)

 

THREADS OF LOVE…SARAH CHAPTER

Dorothy Clark…Instructor

Items for premature babies: Blankets, daygowns made of fabric; hats & booties

can be knitted or crocheted. There will be small quilts (a good chance to practice free motion quilting) that kits will be provided for. 100% cotton batting is needed, but not fusible. Kits will be provided and/or you may bring your own fabrics.

 

We are a non-profit, non denominational ministry dedicated to the production and distribution of clothing and care items to the premature babies – living and deceased – serviced by local San Antonio hospitals and care centers. Our mission is to show the love of Christ to families at a time when their personal pain is hard to endure, letting them know that God is faithful. We pray that this ministry will have an impact far beyond our expectations.

­YOU CAN HELP….

Don’t be afraid of helping if you’re new to sewing, knitting or crocheting. We love to teach and have new people join our group. And if you’re not interested in learning there are still activities and ways to help.
