First Central Baptist Church blesses DAG CT with lots of dresses!

About a year ago, I became involved with Dress a Girl and was very excited to tell everyone about it.  I shared this with was my sister and brother-in-law.  Sandy & Dave are members of First Central Baptist Church in Chicopee, MA.  They suggested I share it with their church.  

Before I ever got a chance to do that, their daughter and my niece, Kate, created a PowerPoint presentation for her middle school and shared it with the folks at their church.  She gathered pillowcases for Dress a Girl and ultimately I was able to share more detail with their church about making our wonderful pillowcase dresses with them.  

They have a talented group of sewers there and set right to work making pillowcase dresses for us.  They quickly made about 60 and sent them with someone going on a Mission through their church.  Since then, their church has turned out 140 more dresses and continues to sew!!

Beautiful details!  Matching bias tape, trim, flower and pocket details!
(The wrinkles are my fault)
This is one example of how cute the dresses I received are!  They are simply beautiful!  Someone is making their own bias tapes and using matching fabric on trims and pockets!  Beautiful! 
So cute!  Lace trims really up the cute factor on this otherwise plain dress.

What a blessing and dream come true this is for me!  This is what I hoped would happen when I took this on as the CT State Representative for Dress a Girl Around the World.  An independent, competent, sewing group that really is self sustained!  I thank God for the sewers of First Central Baptist Church!  May God bless you as you do His work in helping us to bless little girls around the world.  

Thank you all!
