About Our Organization
Sewing for Babies is a total volunteer organization that combines their love of sewing and love of babies to make items which are given to mothers who need them for their babies. Mothers are able to obtain them free of charge when they attend WIC Clinic appointments through Blue Valley Community Action. Items our volunteers sew are bibs .burps ,receiving blankets, changing pads, sleepers, diaper bags, slings, quilts, afghans, dresses, toys, shirts and pants. We made and donated 2,913 items for distribution in 2018. Our volunteers spent 7,490 hours in 2018 to make these items. A new project this year is Angel Pockets and Memory envelopes we make for BCH to give to parents who have the misfortune of a fetal death. Our organization depends totally on donations of material, yarn, thread, and money to continue. Monetary donations are needed for supplies and material for making quilts and sleepers. The cost of making a quilt is $50.00 and sleepers are $24.00.
We will need batting, flannel and material for each quilt we make. We donate 300 quilts per year to Blue Valley Community action and each one costs at least $50.00 to make. The interlock knit costs $12.00 to $15.00 a yard and 2 yards are needed for each sleeper we make. We supply Blue Valley Community action with 300 sleepers and 80 rompers per year.
