Group Sets Sewing Goal for Our NICU Babies’ Comfort

Pictured from left are Marilyn Sinibaldi, Dianna Peterson, sewing group members; Alice Miller, NICU team member; and Sue Smith, librarian of Beaman Memorial Library.

Special thanks go out to a group of sewers and quilters from West Boylston who create and donate burp cloths and quilts for babies in our neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). The group, which meets Wednesday nights at the Beaman Library, has made about a dozen quilts to date and has a goal of making “a couple hundred” burp cloths for the NICU in time for the holidays, but they could use help. They are in need of materials including clean, soft cotton, non-pill flannel or jersey materials; batting for the quilts; and, of course more sewers and quilters!
