Hello from Tewksbury MA.  My name is Marcia and I love to crochet for charity.  I do a lot of burial gowns, hat and blanket for the NICU here in Boston.

 

I have 4 children, and 8 grandchildren.  I am retired on disability so I have a lot of free time to craft.

 

I just this morning started on some hats for a charity drive I saw on one of the sites I was on.

 

Looking forward to reading about others on here.

 

Marcia

Hi, and welcome, I also do a lot of charity crocheting, I like that you are also interested in making burial gowns, when I mentioned to someone recently that I was making my first, they thought I was weird and didn't like the thought.   I think it is a very worthy and thoughtful thing to make.  Having family who have lost infants at death or within hours of birth.  I know how it comforts the family to have something made especially for the child.  Keep up the good work and keep sharing yout thoughts.
