Stitch to support Hearts for Hospice
Back in 2015, members of the Greater Kansas City Needlepoint Guild began a project to fulfill a need at a local hospice center. Hearts are placed on the door of any resident who has recently passed away. This alerts anyone who passes by to be respectful of those mourning the death of their loved one. The heart is then given to the family member to be taken home in remembrance of their loved one. 

These hearts are delivered to three hospice centers in Kansas City, including one pediatric center. Since 2018 over 600 needlepoint hearts have been delivered! 

KC Needlepoint is delighted to be able to support the incredible work of Hearts for Hospice. We have put together a blank canvas template that is available for just $10 for anyone who would like to stitch for Hearts for Hospice. Since this is a blank canvas, it is a wonderful opportunity to let your creativity flow and use up threads from your stash. Try out a new stitch and create a beautiful pattern on a heart that will be treasured forever.

When you are done stitching your heart, it may be mailed back to us at KC Needlepoint. We will ensure the heart is finished for you and delivered to Hearts for Hospice.

Our address is:
410 E Gregory Blvd
Kansas City, MO

Thank you all for your generous support of this initiative!

I have the same question as Mary Lou. I ordered a canvas but now can I use it as a template to use my own blank canvas and send more hearts to you? Or is the $10 purchase helping to fund the finishing? I don’t want to cause a problem.
Thank you!

MaryLou – I believe they posted somewhere (!) that after you stitch the heart, you mail it back to KC and they take care of the finishing and donation. Such a beautiful thing to do! I just ordered mine.

Do you only finish heart canvases purchased from your store? Or do you finish and donate all stitched heart canvases sent to your business even though not purchased through you?
