Hello from Tewksbury MA.  My name is Marcia and I love to crochet for charity.  I do a lot of burial gowns, hat and blanket for the NICU here in Boston.

 

I have 4 children, and 8 grandchildren.  I am retired on disability so I have a lot of free time to craft.

 

I just this morning started on some hats for a charity drive I saw on one of the sites I was on.

 

Looking forward to reading about others on here.

Hi, and welcome, I also do a lot of charity crocheting, I like that you are also interested in making burial gowns, when I mentioned to someone recently that I was making my first, they thought I was weird and didn't like the thought.   I think it is a very worthy and thoughtful thing to make.  Having family who have lost infants at death or within hours of birth.  I know how it comforts the family to have something made especially for the child.  Keep up the good work and keep sharing yout thoughts.

    Hello there!  Welcome from the center part of the state!  I think it's wonderful that you make burial gowns.  I have made a few myself and although I find it a very emotionally difficult thing to do, it is also very satisfying knowing that I am helping a family send their little one on in a pretty little outfit that has many good thoughts and prayers put into it.  Ahh, I'm blabbering, I tend to do that, lol!  It's nice to have another person from MA on the 'ville.  There are a few of us, but we are scattered around the state.  Enjoy the 'ville!

I thank you all for the welcome.  Yes it is emotional crocheting the burial gowns and wraps but as you said it is satisfying.  It give me a sense of peace knowing that the precious little one is brought back to the parents in something that was made with love.
