Dress A Girl Around the World

One of our summer reading activities was a sew-along, where people gathered one evening to join the efforts of  Hope 4 Women International. It was inspirational to see the creativity and generosity of our patrons as they stitched together dress, after beautiful dress. The process was fun too! I learned how to make a dress and even mastered (sort of) the use double-fold bias tape! Thank you to Linda Booth, Priscilla Flack, Jean Lemmon, and Shari Whitney for jumping right into this project.      

Dresses are currently on display in the library. 

All finished dresses will be collected this week and shipped out the first week of September. This is a quick and easy sewing project and we encourage you to participate by sewing at home and bringing your finished projects to the library.
