From Heather Grant, the creator of QuiltCon, a unique sewing guide for friends and families of loved ones fighting cancer, featuring with 27 ideas for genuinely useful gifts, selected by cancer-fighting patients
For those diagnosed with cancer, you know that you do not “beat” cancer. You wait for it to come back. Conceived by friends Susanne Woods and Heather Grant, who both fought cancer, The Sewing Guide to Cancer was made specifically for their friends and loved ones who would tread on eggshells, wanting to help but not knowing what to do.
Now there won’t be any questions. Inside this book, you’ll find 27 genuinely useful sewing projects for friends and family to create and give to those fighting cancer, designed by 23 industry leaders. With their guidance, you’ll be able to create a number of useful gifts such as a weighted blanket, hug pillow, infusion bag, robe, seatbelt cover, port shirt, and more.
Written with a great deal of black humor, The Sewing Guide to Cancer offers ideas and guidance to the support team. No longer will those fighting cancer have to endure a multitude of pasta bakes from concerned loved ones. Susanne Woods lost her fight in 2020. To honor her and the many others, all profits from the book will go to the American Cancer Society.
