Our pillowcase dress sew-in and collection drive for a new orphanage in the Philippines was a huge success! With donations rolling in from afar and 47 dresses completed at February's sew-in right here in the Greenhouse, our classroom and community space, we filled two giant boxes with 124 beautifully handmade dresses to send to our friends in charge of building this new orphanage! Carmen Baugh, the organizer of our drive and sew-in, created this excellent tutorial & template to create these dresses if you'd like to make some for any special little girls in your life or an organization close to your heart.
Thank you, Carmen!
Thank you so very much to everyone who contributed to this amazing effort! And a very special thank you to Carmen for organizing, and for those of you who took time to sew and send even more dresses on your own outside of our sew-in. We have never seen so many precious dresses in one place, and we are so happy to know that some little girls in the Philippines will have bright, beautiful, and lovingly-sewn dresses to wear.
With so much gratitude for the generosity of our community,
