Angel Box Sew-In
Create handmade items for infant burial kits
No sewing experience is required! We offer a free sewing lesson to teach you how to cut patterns and sew an infant burial garment. A sewing machine and supplies are provided.
If sewing isn’t your interest, we will teach you how to deconstruct and process a donated wedding gown.
You can also hand make Baby & Me bracelets for our Angel Box. This is a great opportunity for kids (age 13 & up) to volunteer with an adult. Supplies are provided; small beads are a choking hazard.
If you are a regular volunteer on our Angel Box Team you can bring your sewing machine, serger, serger, fabric scissors, and crochet supplies to work.
We always appreciate an extra hand afterward to help clean up, vacuum and return the space to its original condition when we’re done.
We offer complimentary water and snacks but feel free to bring your favorite.
Volunteer Hours: 1-4 hours
Sign Up Required – Limited space
