For the holidays, babies at UofL's Center for Women & Infants received new, tiny wardrobe created by the "Happy Stitchers."

Babies in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at the UofL Center for Women and Infants received holiday outfits from a group of volunteers called the “Happy Stitchers.” The volunteers crocheted Christmas outfits, including reindeer hats and diaper covers, for the preemies who are too small for normal baby clothes.

The babies and their families also got a visit from Santa Claus.

“It’s just joy, that’s the season. We are here at Christmas and it’s just the joy of giving and that’s what we do,” said Carrie Schmidt, from the Happy Stitchers.
