If you like to sew, please bring your sewing machine and creative imagination as we make 100 dresses in a single day for girls in developing countries. We also need people to setup, clean up, iron, snip, sort, fetch and carry!
For more information, please contact Suzanne: firstname.lastname@example.org, 925-352-8447.
Sew fests will be scheduled monthly at the St. Michael Hall for all of 2012.
Why do we make dresses? To fight human trafficking. Little girls dressed in rags are a target, while a well dressed girl is assumed to be well cared for by an adult protector. This project is in concert with the national Dress A Girl Around the World project (http://www.dressagirlaroundtheworld.com) and Hope 4 Women International (http://www.hope4kidsinternational.org/h4wi).
