Sewing & Sharing - Changing Lives One Little Dress At A Time

Little Dresses for Africa
What project have you created recently to help someone else?  Recently I visited Priors and Sew Forth in Imperial, NE.  What a wonderful, well organized store with a broad range of quilting and fashion fabrics.  This small town store is remarkable!  Every town & city too, should be so lucky to have a local fabric store.

Ann, Jackie & Janet
Prior's and Sew Forth
Janet on the right is the owner.  She and her staff are delightful and true quilting & sewing enthusiasts.  In fact they participate in a wonderful non-profit program, Little Dresses for Africa. Simple dresses are made from pillowcases and sent to orphanages in Central Africa. To date with contributions from 49 States, over 50,000 dresses have been distributed to over 13 countries.

A Tower of Change
Prior's has already contributed over 100 dresses to Little Dresses for Africa, with their next shipment ready any day now.  Dresses are shipped to Nancy's Notions in Beaver Dam, WI for distribution.

Want to combine your love for sewing with sharing with others?
