Threads of Love Convention

These gowns show the many different sizes that are made by the Threads of Love Ladies.

Last week Threads of Love held their Convention.

There are Threads of Love Chapters all over our country and some members made the trip to Baton Rouge to attend.

Above  you can see a picture of one of the many Display Tables put together by different Threads of Love Chapters.  It is a wonderful opportunity to exchange ideas and be encouraged in this Ministry.

There are ladies who share their love and sewing skills by making tiny garments for Babies who were born too early or in distress.

These are Lovie Dolls.  The Mom sleeps with the Doll so it will have her scent on it, then it is put inside the bed with her baby to give comfort and calm the baby.  

One year the children at my Church made Lovie Dolls for the Babies. Even the littlest children could stuff the Dolls.  They were very serious about their job as we explained what they were used for.  And prayers were said for the Babies who would receive the Dolls.

Here we are at lunch, eating a wonderful meal and listening to the speaker tell us about her job as a Neonatal Nurse.

Women were able to learn new techniques used to embellish the garments.  

I was there only one day teaching but the Convention lasted longer.
And I am sorry to tell you that I did not take even  one picture in class.  We were too busy!

"As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God."
1 Peter 4:10

Our precious twins born at 32 weeks have been blessed to receive little diaper shirts to wear from this group. Such a wonderful and special group that makes these. When you are on the receiving end I hope and pray these ladies know they are making these babies and parents feel loved and prayed for. Thank you for your time and prayers

This is an amazing sewing ministry. I so look forward to being able to devote time to this special cause, retirement in two years is almost here!

What a wonderful ministry! I don't know if there is anything like that where I live. I am going to check into it. The love and support must be such a blessing to the babies and their families.
