Sewing For Smiles

Sewing For Smiles is a ministry that sews dresses and shorts mainly out of pillowcases for needy kids around the world.  What began as a little idea and small goal of 300 dresses 2 years ago has grown to over 4,000 dresses and pairs of shorts made.  Most of those are in 14 countries on little kids now.  How exciting it is to watch this grow and multiply……all because of the love and support and help from so many of you.  Those of you who have donated supplies, done sewing for the project, distributed dresses and shorts on mission trips, or helped in any way………..a very big thank you!  I originally thought it would be nice to make clothes for needy kids.  I have come to realize what it is really all about is showing love and bringing hope to them.  Our goal is to put smiles on little faces that may not have a lot of reasons to smile!

Ways you can help are:

Donations of used or new pillowcases, double fold bias tape, 1/2 inch elastic or 1 inch elastic.

Sew for us………..no skill needed!  Supplies and pattern provided.

Let us know if you are going somewhere on a mission trip and would be willing to take some in your suitcase.
