This ministry seeks to help heal and bind hearts of parents together at a time of uncertainty about their baby’s health or when they have lost an infant. If you can sew, quilt, crochet, or knit, you can use those gifts to help serve in this special ministry! Woodworking skills also needed!

Our next meeting will be Wednesday, Oct 2 at 1:00pm in the G Building Conference Room.

                 

Our motto is taken from scripture, Matthew 25:40: “Truly, I tell you, whatever you did for the least of these brothers and sisters of Mine, you did unto Me.” Threads of Love is a ministry meeting the needs of tiny premature infants.  At our satellite we will be crocheting, knitting, sewing, quilting, and woodworking various items.  Men, we also need you; our ministry also serves the needs of deceased premature infants with the making of caskets for families that can’t afford to purchase one. You do not have to know any of the above skills; we still need volunteers to hand-sew Threads of Love labels on our items, and we will be making “Lovies” at our meetings: a little snowman who has an important job.

Meetings: The first and third Wednesday of each month in the G Building Conference Room from
1-3pm.

DONATIONS NEEDED

With this assistance, we are all able to serve the Lord in caring for His little ones. Matthew 25:40 “Whatever you do for the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you do unto me.”

Items Crocheted or Knitted (Baby Hats, Booties, Kangaroo Squares):

Acrylic Baby Yarn – As the premature babies are very fragile, with tender skin and as thin as paper, the following criteria is very important.

  1. The lease expensive acrylic yarn you can find that meets the following criteria:  No Pomp, Nothing Added to the Yarn that IS NOT Yarn, Nothing Wavy, Nothing that has different textures, or Feathery. Just plain yarn.
  2. Yarn should be a 3-ply acrylic that is soft and can have multi colors.
  3. Colors should be pastels and white – exception:  No Yellow. Some babies suffer from jaundice and yellow is not the best color in these cases.

Sewing: (Onesies, Gowns, Laundry Bags, etc.)

  1. Fabric: Must be 100% cotton and baby themed, pastels, or small flowers.  No dark colors. Holiday themed fabric may be used, however, nothing scary nor any Santas.
  2. Thread: Good quality for Sewing

Quilts: (36 “ x 42” Quilts are used as Isolette Covers in NICU)

  1. Batting:  Fairfield Quilter’s 80/20 (80% cotton and 20% polyester) Medium – found at Walmart to be the least expensive.
  2. Fiberfill: A large box – whatever is the cheapest.
  3. Cotton: For quilt backs.
