Volunteers Needed to help Prepare for April Work Group Weekend
We are looking for volunteers for our April 2009 Work Group Weekend! We need people to help us prepare for and volunteer during the work group.
As many of you know, we’ve taken on a new project called the “Back to Sleep” campaign. We have a goal of providing the UIHC NICU with ~900 sewn blanket sleepers per year. In addition to blankets, we will also be sewing the sleepers at our work groups. We need more volunteers than ever to help with these work groups!! If you are new to TPP, please read below for more information on TPP Work Group Weekends.
Lessons for sewing the blanket sleepers will be provided during the work group. You DO NOT need sewing experience in order to help. We have or will find a job for anyone who wants to help!
**Potluck lunch will be served. Bring a small dish to share**

What if I want to help but cannot attend?
We need volunteers to help with preparations. You can also sew blankets and sleepers in your home on your own time.
How can I help with preparations?
Volunteers are needed to wash fabric and use it to cut out and pin blankets and sleepers. Fabric, pins, patterns and printed directions provided. We will also supply fabric for people who would like to cut out and SEW blankets or sleepers in their home. Contact for more information.
We had a lot of fun at our January 2009 Work Group. It was the first time that we sewed blanket sleepers and everyone had to hang of it by the end of the day. We hope you will consider joining us this time around!
Remember, it’s for the babies!!
