Sewing for Charity

IMG_5838.JPGThese hospital gowns were made for a children’s hospital in Africa. A little unusual for our group to make, but we were asked and we met the challenge. Sew Blessed Kentuckania is a group of local women who enjoy sewing. We typically make clothing for children who live in third world countries:  t-shirt dresses for girls and shorts for boys. Peg, our fearless leader, doesn’t sew a lick, but she is the queen of collecting fabric, t-shirts, and getting others involved in sewing. She is a woman on a mission and for a woman who doesn’t sew, she has the most incredible fabric stash that miraculously keeps replenishing itself. It has been amazing how many people contact Peg with fabric donations. Sew Blessed Kentuckania, is a group of women who feel blessed to have the skills to sew and the opportunity to clothe children. For some little girls, these may be the only dresses they ever own. We are blessed to be a blessing.
