Packing Day

by JenR

Mom had been busily stitching gown sets and sewing blankets for months.  One day she called to say that all of the shirt boxes she used to store the completed sets in were full.  It was time for a packing day.

The sets were lined up on the table waiting to be put into bags.  Next, the pins indicating the size needed to be removed.

(Picture 1)

The labels on the bags were filled in with the gestation week size plus if a hat or bonnet were included, then a business card for HAIN and each gown set went into the bag.

(Picture 2)

Next the sets were sorted by size and put into piles.  The same was done for the blankets.

(Picture 3)

Consulting the needs sheet, gown sets and or blankets were pulled accordingly and put into boxes for mailing.  A letter to the recipient with the box’s contents was typed up and included.  Taped shut and addressed, off to the post office the boxes went.  Some recipients would send an email indicating the box arrived safely, while others would take the time to handwrite a note of appreciation and thanks.  Even if no response comes, it still makes us feel good knowing that all those hours spent on packing day provided another family with a handmade item and hopefully a small amount of comfort in their time of need.
