Volunteer Knitting and Sewing

We are extremely grateful to our volunteer knitters and sewers, living all over WA for the time and effort taken in making baby clothing and blankets.

If you would like to volunteer your time to knit or sew for the babies in the King Edward Memorial Hospital special care nurseries and for our Baby Bundles program please follow the below patterns. These patterns have been approved by our healthcare specialists at KEMH.

Unfortunately, we cannot use garments made from unapproved patterns in our special care nurseries but are happy to take them in our hospital shops to raise funds for research.
