Information for MembersCuddles is a not-for-profit organisation, open to anyone who is interested in helping us by making suitable garments or by fundraising on our behalf.Membership is free and we have over 300 members who knit and crochet, sew and make items and donate them to Cuddles free of charge, knowing that they are giving comfort to  many grieving parents and dignity to their lost baby.We specialise in supplying beautiful clothing at no cost to hospital maternity and gynae wards and to mortuaries. Our items are for the tiniest, most fragile little souls lost through miscarriage or stillbirth.The gowns, sleep suits, and capes are for babies to be dressed in for burial as many are lost at such an early stage that the parents do not have any clothes for them. Those too small or delicate to be dressed can be tucked up in the angel pockets, angel wraps and cocoons or laid safely in the cribs. The blankets are for the parents and family to hold their baby for a while and this can go with baby or retained as a keepsake. The tiny teddies can be made individually or in pairs, one for baby and one for the parents.All the patterns and guidelines for making these items are on the website and Facebook page. You can request to join our Facebook Group where you can add your own stories, patterns and helpful hints or ask advice from our experienced ladies.Your finished items can be sent to the co-ordinator’s address or PO BOX where they will be collected and stored. Once we receive a request for items, each will be labelled with our Cuddles card, carefully packed and sent out. In most cases the hospitals do let us know when the parcels arrive and give us feedback, which you will all get to know about in our newsletters.

We have created a library of a selection of samples to give you a good feel of the type of items we supply to hospitals,
ambulance services and funeral homes. Please click on the link above to view or download details as a pdf.
