Keepsake Cushions

A special way for you to remember a loved one & support the work of St John’s Hospice.

The volunteer sewers of St John’s Hospice will create an intricately stitched patchwork cushion from the garments of your loved one. These lovingly crafted cushions provide a tangible way for you and your family to remember someone and hold them close.

To make one of the very special patchwork cushions we will need between 4-10 freshly laundered shirts, blouses or other cotton garments (10 is ideal).

Other wonderful designs are also available – The Wise Owl and Never Forget Elephant. These can be made with a wider variety of fabrics. Simply bring us your treasured items and we will advise on the best options.

We ask for minimum donations of £40 for cushions and £30 for animal designs. If you would like to have a Keepsake Cushion created please contact Sarah Thornton on 01524 382538 Email [email protected]
