About this event
Due to ongoing community concerns about COVID-19, this event has been cancelled.
The loss of a loved one can be overwhelming. To help with the process, Carle Hospice invites you to join in creating a comfort bear.
Using fabric from a favorite pair of jeans, snuggly pajamas or flannel shirt, Carle Hospice volunteers will create a wonderful keepsake. This bear is perfect for hugging as you move through the grieving process
You will need to provide the fabric and be present while the bear is created. For best results, consider sweatshirts, cotton button-down shirts, flannel shirts and even flannel pajamas. Lace, leather, suede, fur, sweaters or knitted materials can't be used.
There is no cost to have a comfort bear created, but you must RSVP to the session of your choice by contacting Despina at (217) 383-8721 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Sewing volunteers may also contact Despina to contribute your skill and care to this event.
