Healing Quilts in Medicine
Art Quilts Making a Difference in the Lives of Patients and their Families
Welcome to the Healing Quilts in Medicine Website
We are dedicated to projects that bring beauty and education through art quilts into hospitals. This is the vision of Judy House who died of breast cancer in July 2005. In 2012, we brought our organization under the umbrella of Sacred Threads, a 501(c)3 non-profit. This allows us to better meet our mission for providing artwork for hospitals.
Do you have a project that you have created for a hospital? We would love to include it in our galleries and links. Please email Lisa Ellis at [email protected].
