Threads of Love in Greensboro, GA

The Lake Oconee Chapter of Threads of Love makes and donates preemie bereavement gowns and blankets to families who have lost a child prematurely. We make gowns in sizes 1-2#, 3-4#, and 5-6# paired with a matching blanket. These are packaged and given to several hospitals that share them with families to use for burial or a keepsake. Funds are used to purchase fabric for gowns and blankets. TOL very much appreciates the First Presbyterian Church of Greensboro for your past support of this precious ministry. Thank you so very much!!

In the spring of 2010, Joyce Daniel read about Threads of Love on one of her online sewing newsgroups. She asked some questions and found out that their bi-yearly conference was coming up in Charlotte, NC so she made plans to attend. She met some very dedicated folks including Sissy, found out how to start a chapter, taught 2 classes, and then back to Greensboro, Ga to get things rolling. She was able to explain Threads of Love to her Community Bible Study group and had 10 gals ready to go. Our group now has 26 gals on the roster. 8-10 gals come each month. We meet once a month and cut gowns in 4 different sizes and 22” square blankets. Those who sew take gowns home to sew. The blankets are serged and then the edge is crocheted. Others cut, embroider designs on, package all the pieces, some deliver, etc. We provide preemie bereavement gowns and blankets to 10+ hospitals in several different states and in Mexico. We also do a Bertha Wrap for babies <1# per a request from several hospitals. These are made from hankies and packaged with a blanket. A certificate of recognition, prayer card, crocheted cap, an embroidered heart complete the packet. They are given to hospitals to give to parents who have lost a child.

Congratulations Sissy on 20 years of Threads of Love. We look forward to providing TLC to families who have lost a child prematurely. To God be the glory!
