Pendants for Patients

Earlier this year I received a very touching email about a bracelet that I had donated for a cancer patient. I gave the bracelet to one of our regular beaders to pass along to her close friend named Trudy, who dedicates much of her time volunteering at Moffitt cancer center. Trudy found just the perfect patient to give the bracelet to and it meant so much to her. That got me thinking about what we could do this October for our charitable beading event. Last year we raised money for Moffitt, but this year I would like for us to create finished pieces that Trudy can give to patients in need of a cheer-up.

During our Open Beading sessions for the next two Saturdays (October 12 & 19, 1:30-5:00) I would like to invite you to help us make these adorable “Minerva” Owl Pendants designed by Deb Roberti. We will provide the pattern and supplies, just bring your needle and your talent! This is an easy pattern to follow and works up quickly.

If you cannot attend these dates, but would still like to contribute, simply bring a piece of your beaded jewelry to our shop any time during the month of October and we will give all the pieces to Trudy to find loving homes for. Especially with the holidays coming up, these pieces are very meaningful. Sometimes they are even given to the husband or child of a patient, so that they can give it as a holiday gift during a time when things may be financially difficult and they might not be able to purchase a gift due to medical expenses.

I hope you will be able to join us for our first Pendants for Patients event!
