About the Event

Join us for a fun filled sewing circle as we sew dresses for little girls in Africa.  We will collect the dresses at a later date and ship them to a specific organization who will give them directly to young girls.

You will need the following items to participate:

  • Fabric for dress, 3/4 yard or a pillow case
  • Coordinating fabric for ties, 1/8' yard
  • Single fold 1/2 bias tape, 1 pkg.
  • Seam gauge
  • Rotary cutter
  • Cutting mat
  • All-purpose thread
  • Straight pins
  • Iron and ironing board
  • Sewing machine
  • Fabric scissors
  • Loop turner

Tips: For a professional finish, use bias ape to cover armhole seams as it can easily stretch around the curved areas. Try using a complementary fabric or ribbon for the ties.  want a bow on each shoulder? Simply make two ties and feed each one through the front casing and one through the back casing. Tie front and back ties together in a bow on each shoulder.

Zoom link will be emailed to all registered attends the day before and then again two hours before the event.
