With a belief that every baby, no matter how brief their life, should be wrapped in a cozy blanket or given a beautiful hat, the Still Remembered Project knows how cherished knitted, crocheted and sewn items are to families who have lost a baby. The Stitched with Love project was formed to help ensure that every baby and family has the gift of a handcrafted item for a baby or in honor of a baby.
Stitched with Love collects a variety of homemade knitted, crocheted and sewn items which are all donated to local hospitals, funeral homes and bereaved families. Wedding gowns are also collected for volunteers to redesign into ‘Angel Gowns’ for infants. Volunteers, mostly bereaved mothers and grandmothers, donate their time and talent to create all of these priceless items for the tiniest of babies. Every stitch is done with love.
We are forever grateful.

Angel Gowns are created from donated wedding gowns. Our volunteers take fabric from donated wedding gowns and redesign the wedding dress into a simple, tiny gown for a precious baby. In many cases, our volunteers can create a few Angel Gowns from one wedding gown. These Angel Gowns are offered to families whose babies have passed away as a precious outfit for them to dress their little one in. Some families will have their baby baptized, blessed or photographed in the gown. Others will choose to bury their baby in these precious garments. They truly are a cherished gift to the families who receive them. Learn more about the Angel Gown Program > >
