We are pleased to announce that Country Needleworks is now a collection site for Abigail’s Attic.
Abigail’s Attic is a charity that provides burial gowns, blankets, booties and knitted toys to families who’s babies are born angels. They take donations of wedding, prom and bridesmaid dresses and lovingly transform them into Burial/Memory gowns. They also take donations of hand knit blankets, hats, booties and toys as well as sewing supplies and yarn. Any experienced sewers who would be interested in volunteering their time can contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also find them on Facebook: Abigail’s Attic.
Here are links to some patterns that would make great donations. We will have these patterns in a binder at the store as well. Any pattern you have would be great though. Just remember to keep them small (preemie size) and in soft pastel colors like white, cream, blue and pink.
Crochet or Knitters - to make booties, afghans, outfits as needed.
