DRESSES NEEDED! Many requests for dresses!

Well, the Christmas season is upon us and I have just had 4 requests for dresses from 4 different organizations taking missions trips between now and February!

Ladies, start your sewing machines!  I need help.  I know everyone is busy at this time of year, I am as well.  If you have any dresses you have sewn or started, could you try to finish them and get them to me asap?  If you have time, could you sew a few up for me?

Help us bless girls this Christmas!
I was so thankful when a woman called me out of the blue just a couple weeks ago.  It was days before her trip to Mozambique and she just heard about DAGATW.  She wanted dresses for the next week.  I had a couple of large boxes that I was tripping over in my sewing studio and was thrilled to send them with her to bless little girls for Christmas!

Now I have no finished dresses and have a student from Fordham University that would like some for a trip soon.  She is coming home to CT around December 20th and I told her I'd have dresses.  Another gentleman just contacted me this morning that he has a trip in early January and needs dresses by December 29th!

I know God will guide us to get these done.  I am asking for your help.  I planned an impromptu sewing date TONIGHT, December 11th at Cornerstone Church in Cheshire from 7-9pm if anyone can join us to help.  The address is 1146 Waterbury Road in Cheshire.  Come with your sewing machine and any supplies you may have.  Any financial donations are welcome as well and are 100% tax deductible.  Checks should me made payable to "Cornerstone Church-Dress a Girl ministry".

Thank you and I hope to see you tonight!

Dress a Girl gets national exposure with TV interview on "The Better Show"

This past fall I was asked if I would like to be featured on "The Better Show" for a segment they call "Women Who Inspire."  I had the opportunity to travel into NYC to do an interview with Audra Lowe of "The Better Show" about Dress a Girl Around the World.  It was lots of fun and I really enjoyed being able to talk about DAG knowing how many people would be able to see what we are doing to help bless little girls with their own pretty pillowcase dress!  What a great opportunity to share!
