The Threads Committee at Wake Med Cary Hospital coordinates volunteer community crafters who knit, crochet and quilt comfort items distributed to patients free of charge.



Approximately 25 premature babies are delivered each month at Wake Med Cary.  The Threads Committee is looking for quilters to create incubator quilts for the preemie babies.  Creating incubator quilts is an easy and fun way to help our local community hospital.



The required size is 36 by 36 inches and must be made with quilt-shop quality cotton, 100% cotton batting, and cotton thread (no flannel or minky --they create potential problems with the incubator machinery). A quilt can be for a boy, a girl, or gender neutral.



Cary Quilting Company is pleased to participate as the collection point for Wake Med Cary’s incubator quilts project. 

If you would like to help, just drop off your contributions at the shop or mail them to us: Cary Quilting Company, Incubator Quilts Project, 935 N Harrison Ave, Cary, NC 27513. 



Please include your contact information with the quilt so you can be acknowledged. 



This is an ongoing project -- they need 20-25 incubator quilts every month!



If you have questions please contact Threads Committee member Joyce Aschenbrenner at or 919-272-8300.
