350 dedicated volunteers at Angel Gowns Australia have been making baby bereavement gowns for the past five years, upcycled from donated wedding dresses. Which have been gifted free of charge to hundreds of hospitals and funeral homes to be offered to bereaved families when needed.
To Celebrate five years, a curated selection of donated vintage gowns and accessories will be on display, as well as a showcase of baby gowns made by members.
You are also invited to sit and make a heart to contribute to the display, with materials provided.
About Angel Gowns
Angel Gowns Australia Inc. is a nationally registered charity and not-for-profit organisation.
They hope to touch the hearts of all Australians, especially those who have experienced the unimaginable death, illness or disability of their baby or child.
Volunteer seamstresses lovingly handcraft beautiful Angel Gown garments from previously donated wedding dresses from brides who want the love from their wedding day to be made into tiny Angel Gowns garments. These are then gifted to bereaved families through hospitals and funeral homes to honour little angels who are stillborn, who have not survived an illness, or are born prematurely and don’t make it home from the hospital.
