Little Dresses for Africa

Changing the world one dress at a time! Join us on Saturday, May 14th 9:30am till 1:30pm at the Wesley Outreach Center. Please bring your supplies as well as a lunch item to share. All are welcome to attend. For more information call Andrea Kyker (336)818-1765 / adkyker@gmail.com

Our mission is to provide relief to children of Africa, by distributing dresses to little girls, primarily in African villages, but also other countries in crisis. It is our hope that in delivering dresses to these young girls, that a seed will be planted in their hearts, in the name of Jesus, that they are worthy. We plant the seeds; God sends the harvest.

Everyone can participate! You can donate pillowcases or material, sewing supplies, elastic or double bias tape. You can donate financially to the sewing projects. You can sew independently or form a group to sew. There is something for everyone. Together we all can make a difference!

Why Pillowcases? They are readily available and because the hem is already in the material, even a novice seamstress can be involved in this worthwhile project. The pillowcase pattern has been around since the Pioneer days. They are simple, come in all sizes, materials and colors. This is something so simple but makes such a huge difference in the life of a little girl.

All are invited! We want this to be a community wide project!
