Child Life Specialists in the hospitals have told us that a handmade gift brings an extra touch of love.



Many, but not all,  of our gifts are created using patterns designed by our own volunteers.  The development of these patterns was important in providing a tool for volunteers to participate in the project. This website provides the capability for free downloads of patterns in order to facilitate the distribution to volunteers.  The patterns are intended to be used for the project.   If you would like to use the patterns for personal use, we would appreciate you making  a second item for the project.

Stitchin' for Kids is a group of volunteers who create gifts for children requiring extended stays in hospitals. The gifts are intended to entertain as well as provide comfort and are aimed at the needs of children of all ages.  

Since 2009, volunteers who like to sew and knit have contributed to the project. They appreciate that their efforts will brighten a child's day. 

Stitchin' for Kids

Our gifts include doll wardrobes and accessories to be given with new Corolle dolls, stuffed animals and other toys, and quilts and blankets.  We create many of our own patterns.

We make twice yearly donations to hospitals in Northern California and Washington.
