Little Dresses for Africa

There WILL be child care from 3-5:30 pm!!

Little Dresses for Africa service project.

Changing lives one little dress at a time.

Friday, September 25th

3 pm – Finish

9821 Old Placerville Rd

Sacramento CA, 95827

Over 135 pillowcases & fabrics have been collected. Please come

to help assemble & sew them into dresses for African orphanages.

See the original post here.

Items to bring along: thread, scissors, elastic, rotary cutter & mat,

iron/board, pins, sewing machine, serger, YOURSELF!

(Be sure to label all items with your name.)

Any extras like Ric Rac, lace or ribbon can add nice touches.

If you're a thrift store shopper, there's always some ric rac for .50 cents or so.

All & none talent is needed. From cutting & sewing to ironing &

sizing. No sewing skills are necessary. Only the desire to do good.

Come for as little as 10 minutes.

Children old enough to help are welcome.

If you would like to do these at home, let me know!

I can drop off some supplies & show you how to do them.

Even if it's only the prep work!

I do need some one to be my second in command.

You just need to be able to boss people

around & be there for the most part.

Feel free to call or email with questions.

I finally have the bows done and I'll send them out on monday, I was going to send them today but it's looking less and less possible! Sorry it's taking so long but they really are coming!

I showed up late on Saturday and no one was there. (We got stuck at my father-in-laws house.) Did you still do it and I just missed out? I'm sorry I wasn't able to help.
