Quiltsy Cares: Joan Lessner from BeautifulDayScarves

Today's Quiltsy Cares donator is Joan Lessner from BeautifulDayScarves. Joan's charity is Virginia Piper Cancer Institute/Minnesota Oncology

When she was asked why her charity was so special to her, this was her answer: "I am a breast cancer survivor and this is the place where I received my treatment". 

Her shop is an ongoing donation to her charity.  For each scarf sold, an identical scarf is donated to VPCI and given away free to chemo patients. The really nice thing about the scarves is that they are soft and comfortable on an itchy scalp. They are also quite versatile and can be tied in a variety of ways. And then, when your hair comes back, you still have an infinity scarf!

Joan lives in Fridley, MN and has been quilting for 15 years. She has been a Quiltsy member for 3 years. Her favorite thing to make in her Etsy Shop is quilt tops. 

Joan has two shopson Etsy.
