or an expert, you are welcome to join us.

Fish that UFO (Unfinished Object) out

of the drawer and get going on it again.

CCandCer’s are always ready with a helping

hand, a lesson, or some advice. Each week,

a different Member brings a cake—tried

and true, or experimental. Babysitting is not

available and there are lots of sharp objects

about (pins, needles, scissors and wit) so

we cannot accommodate children. Contact

Suzanne Dundas at chatcraftcake@ for more information.

Heart Pillow Project

Members work together to make heartshaped

pillows designed to help support the

arms of recent mastectomy patients. Each

pillow is made with TLC, wrapped, and

comes with a note signed by an AWC volunteer.

No sewing skills are needed, as you

can cut, stuff, or wrap the heart pillows. We

are proud to provide men and women with

something both practical and comforting,

and we know our work helps because we often

receive thank-you notes and emails from

the patients who have received a heart pillow.

For more information, please contact

Jan de Vries at heartpillow@awcthehague.

Visitors Welcome

Out to Lunch Bunch: May – In


Café Brasserie Huszár is located in the former

office building of the steel company

Royal Braat, which produced iron and steel

decorations for buildings in the art nouveau

style. Production halls were built outside

the city center of Delft, but the large office

was built at the Hooikade. Naturally,

the building had steel windows from its

own production. Elsewhere in the building

is a four-story decorative stained-glass

window, designed by the Hungarian artist

Vilmos Huszár, for which the restaurant

is named. The word “Huszár” (Huzaar, in

Dutch) means "soldier on horseback" and is

pictured in the logo. We will not be able to

see the stained-glass window but will have

a nice lunch: a combination of sustainable

and organic products, with great service. To

sign up, please contact Greetje Engelsman
