Several years ago, Denise Hurley of Glass Addicts Stained Glass Creations published a book entitled "Flowers of Hope," dedicated to increasing breast cancer awareness. She was hoping that stained glass crafters across America would get together and make the designs in the book to support local breast cancer awareness efforts. The designs could be made individually or put together into larger "quilt" panels ~ with the results either given to survivors or auctioned off or whatever. As she put it in our phone conversations, she couldn't run the relays and didn't have a lot of money to donate, but she could make a panel. And if all the glass people in America made a panel, we could affect a LOT of people.

2016 Flowers of Hope

At the Breast Cancer Awareness Team meeting on August 4, it was determined that 19 breast cancer patients will be celebrating their first year of survivorship this October, and so 19 panels will be needed for year’s 13th Annual Pinebelt Flowers of Hope Project.. If you are planning to participate, and haven’t talked with us yet, please let me know ASAP (so I can tell how many more we might need to make in the studio!). I know this is kind of late notice, but I am confident that the Pinebelt stained glass community can do this! As in previous years, any “extra” panels received will be distributed to breast cancer recipients from additional months.

Be sure to stop by the first floor galleries at the Library during the first two weeks of October ~ or come to the artists' and survivors' reception on October 13 ~ to see what a wonderful gift these artists are providing to neighbors in the Pinebelt community! Click HERE for a flyer pertaining to the reception and exhibit.
