Dress-A-Girl…Not Just for Gals

Attention seamstresses and doll-makers, ironers, and fabric cutters! We’re meeting again on January 23rd from 4-8pm in Westminster Hall to make dresses and dolls for girls in Haiti. Women and men, people of all ages, come for as long (or as short) of a time as you want to participate in this worthwhile and fun activity that has a profound effect on the lives of the children who receive our finished products. If you’ve never attended a sewing event, it’s never too late to start. If you don’t sew, we have plenty of other jobs that you can help with to complete the dresses. And it’s an evening of fun and discussion and laughs!

If you have a sewing machine and are able to bring it along with you, please do. If you have colorful buttons the size of a dime, we can use them! We have plenty of fabric and other notions, but it’s always helpful if you bring a pair of scissors with you; one never knows when a thread might need to be clipped!

Please bring a salad ingredient to contribute to our build-a-salad dinner. Dessert and beverages will be provided. To date we have completed 225 dresses, and at least 163 of them will be sent to Haiti at the end of the month with Sue Robinson, a member of Hamburg Presbyterian Church.
