Dress a Girl Around the World charity event Sun 27 April

April 4th, 2014
Dress a Girl Around the World

Dress a Girl Around the World

If you feel that every girl should at least own one pretty dress, then please join us at The Constant Knitter on Sunday the 27th of April, 14:00-18:00, for what we are hoping its going to turn into a sewing frenzy! We are asking you to turn a pretty pillowcase into a simple dress for a little girl living in poverty in the developing world. We are also going to make shorts for the boys out of t-shirts. You don’t have to be able to sew – if you can cut or iron that would be very helpful too.

If you would like to take part at this event please send us an email so that we know how many people to expect. You are very welcome to bring family and friends too….

Sewing machines will be supplied – all you have to bring is a pillow case or similar amount of fabric, threads, some elastic, maybe some trims to make the dresses even more special. We would love you to join us….there will also be tea and cakes!!
