Little Dresses for Africa

Through blog reading and a little encouragement from my sister, Mom has gotten involved with Little Dresses for Africa.  Mom loves fabric and sewing and all people who love sewing and fabric so she rallied the troops and had  two days of dress making (and making shorts for the boys). It was an impressive sight to see all those sewing machines set up and everyone who helped out (women and men!). Growing up Mom always told us “Many hands make light work” and I jokingly repeated that to her as we stood there surveying the piles of dresses and shorts.  Everyone who participated had a good time and Mom is already eyeballing another couple of dates so we can do it again. (FYI… I just ironed. I’m not good at much else …)



  1. It looks like your mom organized a very productive event!! How many items were made? It looked like a good bit!

  2. 60 dresses, 40 pairs of shorts and so many more cut out and ready to sew! We had so much fun. Our Pastor will take the first batch on a mission trip April 7th.

  3. Oh, I wish I were there. I would love to have some sewing buddies. That looks like a ton of fun!!!

  4. You guys amaze me! What a great idea! That would be so much fun. Although, I would have to be an ironer as well. 🙂

  5. Ironers are very, very important!
