Take a Thread & Follow It Application Form

Take a Thread and Follow It is a 6-week online program where participants and facilitators gather once a week for 1 hour on Zoom.

This Expressive Arts adventure uses simple stitching as a metaphor to explore stories related to each person’s cancer journey.

We are hosting this 2 times in 2023: April and November.
