Baby Angel Gowns

Angel Gowns is a volunteeer organization that takes donated wedding gowns and refashions them into burial gowns for the infants who do not leave the hospitals alive. Our local group meets at the Fillmore Library…we are in special need of those who have a sewing machine and can bring it or those who have a machine and would prefer to work at home. The sewers claim that it is not difficult…very basic seams…no fancy work. Others rip apart gowns, snip off the embellishments and some hand sew the embellishments back on the finished gowns…again very simple and basic.

You are cordially invited to join us for the work bees; you do not need to stay the entire time.
