We've come up with another project and this  using blankets to make coats and capes for girls.  Loving what the ladies come up with!

The label that can save the dignity of a young girl

When you sew this on a dress, think about the little girl whose life you have saved from being raped.  This label does so much for the safety to a young girl.

Sodag on 4/18/12

What an awesome event!  15 women and children joined us to make dresses for girls!  12 dresses were made and yes I found my favorite in the bunch!  I didn't realize how exhausted I was until I got home an hour after it was over!   I've got a second one this week on Saturday at Living Waters Foursquare from 10-2 and am expecting great things!

I recieved a huge donation of sheets and pillowcases and blankets and  tomorrow I'm maked dresses out of the velour blankets to make for pinafores to go over peasant dresses for girls in the Appalacians for next winter. 

I've put feelers out in the Medford area (my stopping grounds!) to see if  there is anyone who would like to host a SoDAG event there.  Love it when I can go "home" for a couple of days to see my family!

This is a favorite of mine of the peasant dresses that we did recently.  At first I was a little hestant of the lizards but it was so cute with the pinafore over it!  Check out my FB page for photos from the past SoDAG event: Dress A Girl Around the World-Southern Oregon

An update from Projet Worth and Outreach and other news

Got an email from Project Worth and Outreach and the girls got the 24 dresses with socks and underwear right in time for easter and waiting to wear them that day!  Awesome!

Getting ready for a big SoDAG event this Wednesday as there is a group of homeschoolers and their moms coming to sew!  I've been told where to flip the switch for the breaker if need be!   Then another Sodag the following Saturday!

I'm working on a big project to bring more awareness to the plight of  our girls in light of the human sex trafficing that is going on aroudn the world. What I'm doing is a small thing, I know but giving a girl a dress made by someone no matter where they are in the little town of Brookings Oregon in the USA or in a third world country nor what the financial status is of the child.  Its about  bringing dignity and compassion for the  child.   I've heard stories from adults who attended Good News Clubs as children where for some the snack was the only meal they got for the day.  It was the love and compassion of another that made the difference in that child's life.
