Sew Much Comfort
Serving Those Who Serve Us:
Sew Much Comfort provides adaptive clothing at no cost to support the unique needs of our injured service members from all branches of the military and national guard. The need for our adaptive clothing continues to grow as American military members continue to be injured serving in our current conflicts. Each week, many wounded military members arrive in the States from Germany for extensive medical treatment for bullet wounds, burns, head and limb injuries and amputations. We also support many previously injured and their needs as they change during the recovery process. These injuries require large fixator, prosthetics and casts that are too bulky to fit under ordinary clothing or underwear. Without adaptive clothing the only option for them is a hospital gown. Sew Much Comfort is the only organization providing adaptive clothing at no cost to our wounded service members.
All our adaptive clothing was designed with input from the wounded and medical personnel. Our wardrobe options continue to evolve as we strive to meet the needs of our injured service members, Our clothing gives the service member and medical personnel the ability to have ready access to their injuries utilizing the adaptive openings in our clothing. The adapted clothing allows injured service members to have their clothing appear the same as normal civilian attire; an attribute which helps facilitate a more natural and comfortable recovery. The clothing is adapted from either store bought garments or sewn with our custom designed patterns.
Since Sew Much Comfort organized in December 2004, our Mission has remained the same, to provide custom-made adaptive clothing at no cost, to injured service members from all branches of the military and national guard, injured while serving in our current conflicts. We hope to aide in their recovery and provide an added measure of comfort and dignity as they recover from their injuries and return to everyday life.
Sew Much Comfort has been able to provide over 75,000 pieces of adaptive clothing and comfort accessories because of the generosity of volunteers that span the United States, Europe and Canada. Volunteers remain the driving force behind our success, their continued dedication and effort in producing and delivering our adaptive clothing enables us to continue to accomplish our mission.
