Some of the Common Thread Circle members wore their “STUFF IT” aprons when they met at the Town & Country Starbucks on Monday, May 13, 2013. Common Thread Circle meets at Starbucks every Monday afternoon to stuff heart-shaped cough pillows for Houston area hospital patients. They also make stuffed animal “critters” for younger children who are patients in area children’s wards.

Three Little Bears were made this week by a member of the Common Thread Circle.  They look forward to being cuddled by three young patients in our area hospitals soon!
