Want to get involved?
We are always seeking new volunteers to help us in our efforts! We
encourage YOU to get involved!
We especially need those with sewing, knitting or crocheting talents, but no
experience is necessary. We are happy to teach you the basics on how to
make our items.
We also can provide activities for school classes, Girl Scout troops or other
groups looking for a fun and easy service project!

Yarn-crafters and Sewers
always need more caring hands to create and assemble our items. We have pre-cut
packets for sewing, yarn donations for our knitters and those who crochet, and
patterns for preemies. Visit the 'Items' page for descriptions and pictures of
some of the items we produce and supply to the hospitals.
All skill levels are welcome - we have everyone from absolute beginners to accomplished and experienced heirloom sewers and crafters participating. Our patterns are simple, but can be embellished for those who are more creative! We also have a variety of bootie patterns available for yarn crafters.
Beginners are encouraged to attend our meetings to get hands-on instruction from our more experienced ladies, however meeting attendance is not required and most volunteers choose to work on items at home in their spare time. For a current list of meetings and other events, please see the 'Events' page.
