The Giving Quilt, Inc. sponsored “Sew Small Day” at St James Lutheran Church in Gonzales on September 28, 2013. Area quilters, some from as far away as Biloxi, came together to sew little quilts for preemie patients at Women’s Hospital in Baton Rouge. The Giving Quilt supplied kits for the little quilts and the quilters supplied the sewing machines and enthusiasm. One hundred forty-nine little quilts were completed in just a few hours. Doris LeBlanc of Gonzales donated a dozen preemie-sized, hand-knit caps and booties to be included in the presentation to Women’s Hospital for their smallest patients.
Candy and Peggy delivered the sew small quilts and caps/booties to the Neo-Natal Unit at Women's Hospital.
