Quilters needed at Hospice Hiland Cottage

The talent of local quilters is being sought by VitalCare Hospice of Little Traverse Bay.

From October to May the Hiland Cottage Quilting Circle, a volunteer-led program, brings together local quilting enthusiasts to bring warmth and comfort to patients at the Hiland Cottage, a VitalCare hospice house located in Petoskey. The Quilting Circle meets every Wednesday from 9 a.m. to Noon in the lower level conference room at the Hiland Cottage.

The Hiland Cottage houses a seven-bed inpatient/residential unit providing 24-hour care to patients at the end of life, along with all administrative offices and community counseling services. Making the experience as comforting as possible is part of Hospice's mission. "We provide the patients and families of Hiland Cottage with a handmade quilt to use and keep as a memento of their loved one. One family chose to display their loved one's quilt at the memorial service," said Heather O'Brien, Volunteer Program Coordinator.

Hospice is also asking area quilters and quilting groups to help in this endeavor by donating handmade quilts, or quilt tops that need to be finished. The group is always in need of cotton material (solid colors and with patterns), twin size cotton sheets, and quilt batting. For more information please contact Barb Postelnick, VitalCare Hospice of Little Traverse Bay Volunteer at (231) 347-0798.
