Threads of Love

I recently moved to Tuscaloosa.

While reading the local Sunday newspaper I came across a page titled "Lend-A-Hand." One of the opportunties was with a group called Threads of Love. I called to get more information and have been crocheting for them for about 2 1/2 months now.

Threads of Love is a national organization with local chapters like the one in Tuscaloosa. They provide items such as booties, hats, blankets, and clothing for preemie babies in their local hospital's neonatal unit. They also provide clothing items and memory envelopes for infants who die due to miscarriage or other complications. Sometimes it is the funeral homes who ask for certain items for burial. Another ministry of Threads of Love is to donate items to Sav-a-Life, Teen MoMs (local agency), and to newborns of less fortunate families.

The ladies and men who sew, knit, and crochet for these infants truely love what they do and want to share their gifts with those in need.
