Holy Sews

Mending Hearts One Stitch at a Time

Holy Sews provides handmade infant burial clothing for families that experience the loss of their baby during gestational weeks 16-25.  These micro preemie babies are much too tiny and fragile for any other clothing that is readily available. We accomplish this by supplying hospitals and funeral homes with a stock of layettes that families can choose from. All of this is provided at absolutely no charge to the hospitals, funeral homes, or the families that they serve.

We are entirely funded by donations and all of our garments are made by volunteers.

Our hearts are with every mother, every day. Every layette that is assembled is done with love and sincere prayers for the mother who will choose special clothing for her baby. This might actually be happening today as I compose this note.

I may be the founder of this beautiful ministry, but Mary Sue Whitelaw is the heart and soul. My adopted mother, my example, my rock, my absolute go-to. The beautiful soul who has believed in this mission and me since day one. In June of 2008, She helped pick me up, dusted me off, and hugged and kissed my pain. With constant love and grace, she reminds me that we are doing God's work when I get sidetracked with the world and the nonsense that comes my way. She never waivers.

I ask so much of Mary Sue. We all do. She ALWAYS says, "I'll take care of it."

She is our matriarch. To know her is to love her. I know I speak for absolutely everyone from upstate new York to California, from Moose Jaw (Canada) to Texas. We love you with all our hearts Mary Sue. 😘💕

I want to post multiple pictures and can't do that in a comment. I have to do better about taking pictures. I'm awful! I need to document all of my family and sweet friends that helped.
We missed you, Regina Lichti Binz! However, Holy Sews was shared- several people asked me where they could donate wedding gowns and extra fabric and such. They have your info!
