The Sewing Guide to Cancer


25 useful craft projects for patients & caregivers by Heather Grant

Book Description

A unique sewing guide for friends and families of loved ones fighting cancer with over 20 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 that would tread on eggshells, wanting to help but not knowing what to do. Now there won’t be any questions. Inside, you’ll find 25 genuinely useful sewing projects designed by two women who have been there for friends and family to create and give to those fighting cancer. The projects have been designed by 23 industry leaders.

With their guidance, you’ll be able to design 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 humour, the book 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 honour her and the many others, all profits from the book will go towards cancer research.

Contributors: Erin Burke Harris, Amy Friend, Kathy Mack, Jacquie Gering, Andrea Tsang Jackson, Heather Grant, Berene Campbell, Samarra Khaja, Heidi Staples, Julie Elliot, Nichole Vogelsinger, Riane Menardi, Cristina Coro, Karen LePage, Olu Falola, Eryn Shields, Kim Martens, Amy Gibson, Angela Walters, Krista Fleckenstein, Nichole Ramirez and Shea Henderson.
