What are TPP Work Group Weekends?
TPP Work Group Weekends are two days of sewing blankets for the babies in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics (UIHC). We welcome volunteers of all ages and sewing skills are not necessary for participation. We’re proud to say that we average 200 finished blankets in one weekend. We need A LOT of help to make these weekends successful.
What should I bring?
1. Sewing Supplies (If you own them already)-sewing machine, thread, scissors, pins, etc
