2016 Heart Pillow Working Bee

Heart Pillows 2016

On Monday, February 22, a Heart Pillow Working Bee took place at Tracy M.’s with 12 AWC Hamburg members participating. A total of 60 pillows were finished with 50 more cut, sewn and ironed--to be finished when more stuffing is available! The AWC Hamburg has been working on the From the Heart Pillow Project for several years. These pillows in the shape of a heart are placed under the arm that helps relieve pressure and pain in post-operative breast cancer patients. In the past AWC Hamburg has donated 160 pillows, which were made during four different sewing bees, to breast cancer patients at Mariahilf Breast Cancer Clinic of the Helios hospital system. In past years all materials were purchased through Bagel Fundraiser Sales and this year through a donation from AWC Hamburg. A special thank you to Tracy M., Jess M., Jana F., Andrea H., Matina H., Sylvia T., Moniky M., Stella K. R., Petra R., Birgit S., Sandra S., and Laura O. fo0r their wonderful work!
