Project 3- Blankets

For project 3 we will be sewing blankets to give to the victims of the deadly tornadoes that affected Alabama on 4/27/2011.

Many of these people have lost everything.

Will you join me in sewing blankets?

Any size blanket, any style blanket...just warmth & love from Sewing Hope to the people of Alabama-

The deadline for this project will be June 1st. Please send blankets as soon as you are able and we will be sure they are delivered as fast as possible to the victims. Need a blanket tutorial? Here are links to some of my favorite ones...notice that some don't even require a sewing machine!!!

A challenge for all!

Our goal for project 2 is to give a crayon roll to every orphan in the town we will be paired with by Orphan Support Africa- I have just learned that this could be up to 1500 children!

In light of hearing this news, I challenge you to sew, sew, sew!!!! How wonderful it would be to be able to give a gift to every orphaned child in the village. Have a sewing hope party & get together with some friends to fellowship & help spread God's love to Subsaharan Africa. The crayon rolls are very simple to construct & take only about 15-30 minutes to make.
We are extending the completion date for the project until the end of March in hopes that we can reach our goal. Please email us with any questions and thank you in advance for your support of this project!
Happy Sewing!

Keep Sewing!

Thank you to everyone for your interest in project 2, crayon holders for AIDS orphans in Africa.

We have already received many crayon holders & thank you to each of you who have participated so far!

I'm going to extend the deadline until the end of February in hopes that we will receive enough to give each child in the orphanage their very own crayon holder.

Email with any questions, thanks again!
