Laurie Glass and her eight-year-old granddaughter Hannah George working on angel pillows.
Laurie Glass and her eight-year-old granddaughter Hannah Georg are making memories not only for themselves but terminally ill patients all over Western Washington.
Glass has lived in Lake Stevens with her husband Jim for 13 years and started making Angel Pillows last year after a friend’s mother fell ill.
“The pillow project came about for my need to have a special gift to give to a friend’s mother who was terminally ill. I wanted to give her an angel pillow and realized I had never seen one, so I created a pattern and made one for myself,” Glass said. “I also realized that there could be other people who could use an angel pillow so I created them in two sizes: the large one measures 22” tall and the small one is 14” tall.”
Soon her granddaughter Hannah was eager to help and started stuffing the pillows as they were ready.
“My granddaughter stuffs them and she was able to sew the bottom of one for the first time a few weeks ago,” Glass said. “Hannah feels strongly about the project, we both love angels and it’s something we do together.”
So far the two have made over 300 pillows and for each pillow they sell they donate one to hospices, homeless families and hospitals to name a few. They have donated several to Lake Stevens Fire to give to families who may need some extra special attention.
The pillows sell for $25 for the larger size and $15 for the smaller pillow and each pillow has a card attached indicating they have been blessed to bring healing, comfort and blessings to the recipient.
“My hope is to continue to make these pillows to bring comfort, peace and prayer to those that need them,” Glass said.
