The Angel Box Team Sew-In

April 6 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm EDT

The Angel Box Team Sew-In 1 - Kennedys Angel Gowns

The Angel Box Team Sew-In 2 - Kennedys Angel Gowns

Join The Angel Box Team Sew-In Event in Chesapeake, Virginia!

About the Event: Come together with our dedicated team of volunteers to create handmade items for our infant burial kits. During this sew-in event, we’ll be sewing angel garments, assembling memory bracelets, deconstructing donated wedding gowns, and crafting Mommy & Me keepsake bracelets.

No Experience Necessary: Whether you’re a seasoned seamstress or new to sewing, everyone is welcome! We offer free sewing lessons and provide all the necessary supplies. Sewing machines are available onsite, but feel free to bring your own if you prefer.

Knitters and Crocheters Needed: In addition to sewing, we’re in need of volunteers who knit and crochet to create hats, booties, and blankets for our kits. Your skills in these crafts are invaluable to our cause.

Make a Meaningful Impact: Join us as we come together for a purpose greater than ourselves. Each item we create brings comfort and solace to grieving families in their time of need.

Flexibility in Participation: While we encourage volunteers to stay for the entire duration of the event, please know that you’re welcome to join us for as long as you’re able. Whether you can spare an hour or the whole three hours, your contribution matters.

Sign Up to Volunteer: Be a part of The Angel Box team by signing up to volunteer via the POINT app. Your commitment helps us plan and ensures that we can accommodate everyone who wants to participate.

Please sign up via the POINT app to volunteer!
