Holy Sews, Inc. was organized to respond to a call to serve as God's hands in the world; to show compassion to families experiencing the perinatal death of a child; to provide handmade layettes to treasure these infants who are too small for even preemie clothing; and to educate communities in caring for families experiencing perinatal bereavement.
Holy Sews DFW reaches out to all hospitals in North Texas, offering to provide a special handmade layette to their patients who have experienced a loss of an infant during early second trimester. These babies are usually about 7-10 inches long and weigh only a few ounces-too small for even preemie size gowns.
Our layettes are handmade with love and understanding by a talented group of volunteers who give countless hours to serving. These volunteers often purchase their own fabric and supplies to make sure every family who experiences a loss can clothe their angel.
We currently provide services to 40 area hospitals, where we partner with nurses and bereavement teams to provide some comfort during a devastating time in these families' lives. We provided nearly 1400 layettes in 2016 and that number continues to grow as we add new hospitals every month.
Please join us in our mission! $25 dollars will provide keepsake cards for 50 layettes. $100 will provide bears for 75 layettes. $500 will provide complete layettes for 25 grieving families.
