“I love to sew,” Susan Bushart of Orleans said at the end of January, as she held up several of her handmade winter hats that reflected that statement.

While simple to make and admittedly “addicting,” Bushart said she wanted to use her passion for sewing to help those less fortunate.

“There is a need,” she said.

As she dropped off the donations at HAC’s Hyannis office, a client in the reception area asked if he could have one. “Thank you very much,” he said, as he put it on. “This is great.”
