Sew with Us this Saturday, October 12!

Dress a Girl Connecticut is meeting this weekend!

Join us
Saturday, October 12, 2013 
from 9am-3pm 
(or any time in between!)
as we Sew, Label and Package dresses!

We will be meeting at:
 Cornerstone Church, 1146 Waterbury Road, Cheshire 
in "Sal's House."

If you have a sewing machine, bring it.  
If you have an iron & ironing board, bring it.  
If you have cotton quilting fabric or pretty pillowcases, bring them.  
(Donations always welcomed!)   
If you come around lunchtime, bring something to share!

This is alot of fun and I look forward to seeing new and familiar faces! 

No sewing experience necessary! 
There are other "tasks" such as cutting, ironing, labeling, sizing, rolling and packaging the dresses.
We are always in need of boxes of quality gallon sized zip lock bags!

We will be making dresses to fulfill requests for dresses to go into Samaritan's Purse Operation Christmas Child girls' boxes.  Other items that are usually included are toiletries, dolls, stuffed animals, costume jewelry, books and games.  However, think SMALL---these all go into a shoebox!
Here are some ideas for items to pack:
  • SCHOOL SUPPLIES: Pens, pencils and sharpeners, crayons or markers, stamps and ink pad sets, writing pads or paper, solar calculators, coloring and picture books, etc.
  • TOYS: Small cars, balls, dolls, stuffed animals, kazoos, harmonicas, yo-yos, jump ropes, small Etch A Sketch,® toys that light up or make noise (with extra batteries), Slinky,® etc.
  • HYGIENE ITEMS: Toothbrush, toothpaste, mild bar soap (in a plastic bag), comb, washcloth, etc.
  • OTHER: T-shirts, socks, ball caps, sunglasses, hair clips, toy jewelry, watches, flashlights (with extra batteries)
We will be collecting these items on Saturday as well to include in the Christmas boxes!
