Everything You Need to Know About Becoming a Seamstress With Us!
Families without access to Angel Gowns, clothe their stillborn infants in a T-shirt or wrap them in a blanket. These precious little souls deserve much better than that. This child will not experience baptism, prom, communion, or a wedding. Therefore, this child should be adorned with a beautiful garment to help celebrate these events that this child will not experience. It’s important for the family to bury their child in something beautiful. To a grieving family, knowing that someone (our seamstresses) cared enough to create something special for them brings comfort.
With over 2,000 dresses in inventory, we need you! If you are at least a moderately skilled seamstress and feel the calling to help grieving families, we would like to hear from you.
** Due to upcoming personal events, we will HALT wedding dress donations effective June 1, 2021 through the rest of 2021. Dress donations accompanied by keepsake order will continue to be accepted.
