I am so excited to tell you about a new SEWING SEEDS project!
A group of friends from my church is heading to Mexico next month to build houses in a poverty-stricken area, and they will also be visiting an orphanage. The people in this area have many needs, and I am hoping we can, as a group, help them out a little bit.
Between now and March 13th, I will be collecting handmade skirts for girls and gently-used shorts for boys, for the missions team to take down and distribute. Some will be given out at the orphanage, and any extras will be passed out on the streets.
So, this gives us just one month!
If you would like to help out, please email me at sewingseedsfsf (at) gmail (dot) com and I will send you my address. You can send any amount of skirts and/or shorts. If you don't know what to send, I suggest that you send something that would fit your own kids/grandkids/nieces or nephews. That way you are blessing a child very similar to your own. Also, feel free to make something for an older child. I am thinking 14-16 would be the oldest.
Here are some tutorial links:
I want to thank you ahead of time for considering this. Sewing Seeds is my favorite thing to do here on my blog and it's been WAY to long since it's happened (has it really been almost 5 years????). My goal is to do this more often!
Have a great day, friends! And please feel free to spread the word out this Sewing Seeds project on your blog or other social media.
"Sow the good seeds of righteousness, and you will harvest a crop of my love. Plow up the hard ground of your hearts, for now is the time to seek the Lord, that he may come and shower righteousness upon you."---Hosea 10:12
PS...the picture above was taken in Africa and it shows our first Sewing Seeds project. My daughter (in the picture) took 300 skirts with her to pass out to the community.
