Members of Alpharetta Methodist support Tiny Stitches, Inc., a nonprofit ministry that sews, knits and crochets items for infants and preemies born in Georgia in poverty. The ministry provides:
- Basic layettes containing clothing and other items for disadvantaged families
- Burial ensembles for families who suffer the lost of an infant, regardless of financial status
Sewn items include gowns, sleepers, lap-front shirts, receiving blankets, crib quilts, creepers, washcloths, bibs, burp cloths and tote bags. Knitted and crocheted items include caps, bonnets, blankets, booties, sacques and sweaters.
Tiny Stitches meets on the second Saturday of each month at from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Alpharetta Methodist. Sewing supplies and yarn are available free of charge to volunteers at the workshops. Everyone who is able to sew, knit or crochet — or who would like to learn these skills — is welcome.
