Get Crafty for Newborns (age 14+) *Hands On*
How can crafting make a difference? You might wonder why all the recent fuss about knitting, crocheting, and sewing. Volunteers from the Hands On craft groups will say they love getting together to socialize with new friends and marvel over the creativity of items made. But those who really benefit from our crafting are the recipients of the handmade treasures.
Join in this project and knit, sew, crochet, or quilt anything baby to be donated to the Virginia Garcia Memorial Health Clinic and Emanuel Hospital. A handmade item will make a loving impression on a new mom and baby. Another option - make a garment for a toddler/child/youth to be used to help diffuse trauma & negative impacts on the younger set when they have to be admitted to the hospital.
Please know how to knit, sew, or crochet. We have limited supplies, so please bring your own if possible! Any pattern is fine, and we have a few to share if you like. This is a great opportunity to meet other crafters and create special gifts for the children (both new arrivals and older) at the Virginia Garcia and Emmanuel clinics.
**Spring 2018 Special Volunteer Need: We are looking for volunteers who know how to sew, particularly small fabric scent squares that will be given to families with babies in the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit). We have the materials (and possibly even the sewing machine!), but we need your help to make these squares for families. Please sign up for the March or April 2018 projects!
