What we're about
JerLisa Stitches is all about children and Teddy Bears.
JerLisa Stitches of Love was created to provide a rich social support for people who want to give of their time in creating beautiful handcrafted teddy bears, and quilts, for children whose lives which have been turned upside down with crises.
You will feel a sense of satisfaction and personal joy knowing you will provide love, warmth, comfort and a sense of security for the hurting children of Modesto and surrounding communities with a simple Teddy Bear.
Your busy life will be enriched, you will enjoy laughter and friendly conversation, make new friends and create meaningful memories.
Traumatized children are usually frightened and insecure when their normal lives are falling apart. They are in dire need of comfort and to feel safe. First Responders, when they have the resources, can provide these children with a Teddy Bear and/or a small quilt that the child can keep for their very own.
At JerLisa Stitches of Love we invite you to work with us as a team to cut, sew, trim, fill the Teddy Bears with stuffing, stitch up the “fill hole”, or tie on a pretty ribbon. Then bag them for our local police officers, firefighters, and Child Protective Services Workers, and local hospitals, to give to comfort children in situations that can be frightening and confusing to them.
No sewing skills or talent needed, only a giving heart and helpful hands.
Donations of fabric, ribbon and stuffing, will gratefully be accepted.
