We cannot begin to tell you what it means to a bereaved family to have something very special to dress their baby in. Many of these babies are just too tiny to even purchase anything at all in the store that will work.
Our Sewn With Love Project receives donations of wedding, prom and bridesmaid types of dresses. A team of volunteers takes the gowns apart. Every piece of lace and every bead and button is reused in the construction of precious items for babies. Seamstresses from all across the country then generously donate their time to turn the fabric pieces into precious clothing.
In addition, donations of soft fabrics like cotton, fleece and flannel to make blankets in various sizes, hats and diapers are graciously accepted.
We have a collection of patterns for knitted, crocheted and sewn items or you are welcome to use something of your own.
If you would like to make a donation, help take apart the dresses or sew the clothing items, please contact us!
If you are a hospital, clinic or obstetrical provider and would like to obtain some of these items for your patients please give us a call at 952-715-7731!

We are grateful to the many generous supporters of this project.
