Stitches of Love

The Dubuque Stitches of Love project, which began in 2004, is proud to have completed its 20th year of service to the Tri-State Community.  This mission of Stitches of Love is to make adult-sized headwear, free of charge, for local cancer patients and to distribute them through two treatment centers.

From 2004 to 2023, we made and donated a total of 5,147 hats.  In 2023, we donated 112 hats with the time and talent of 7 volunteers. These 112 items were lovingly made with over 336 hours of volunteer time.  The total hats donated included:  28 hand-knit, 73 hand-crochet, 0 pillbox hats (knit, T-shier, fleece, sweatshirt, slouch hats), and 11 kerchiefrs/scrub hats.  We used the following volunteer number o hours to make the hard:  hand knit (3), hand crochet (3), pillbox (1.5) and kerchief (3).  These times include any laundering, ironing, transportations, etc.

Stitches of Love revenue primarily comes from personal donations. In the past, the American Cancer Society has donated leftover Relay for Life t-shirts, and they continue to be recycled into kerchiefs, slouch hats, and pillbox hats. We received one $100 donation and several miscellaneous individual donations of fabric, yarn, and batting from current and past CCQG members and community volunteers. Dubuque Sewing & Vacuum donated a used serger in 2022.

Finally, a big THANK YOU goes to you for supporting this most worthwhile cause.
