CHERRIE's DREAM LIST
- Flannel is still on sale at Joann fabrics and now with additional $5 coupon off $35 spent. 2 yard increments work best (ie., bolt is 8 yards)
- Large see-through storage bins
- Color-Catchers for washing fabrics, especially batiks (in laundry section of store)
- Heavy Duty lint rollers
- Packages of girl's panties (Target, WalMart)
- Hotel size soap bars
- Ziplock (brand specific) freezer gallon bags - tabs only - no zippers
Our goal is to make a quality item that lasts for 3 years. Everyone needs to be familiar with the quality control criteria for every item they work on. Items that don't meet the criteria cannot be included in a Days4Girls bag.
Continued excitement about the project
This is an ongoing project and we're looking for interested individuals to lead one of the areas we're working on. I have 2 ladies who will be doing our quality control and inspection of all items produced.
We are an Official Days for Girls Team - The Spokane WA Team, having passed our sample evaluation. We had to send multiple pictures alongside rulers and with closeups to show we met the quality control criteria of each component - bag, shields and both regular and heavy duty liners.
We support Choshen Farm and the work they do with girls in the village of Fimpulu in northern Zambia.
Days for Girls Sew Day
What if your girls missed a week of school every month? That's a thing in rural Africa. It's not uncommon for girls around the world to miss school because they don't have the products they need.
The Garland Church sewing group is partnering with Days for Girls and Choshen Farm with a goal of making 1000 sustainable feminine products kits for girls in Zambia. Women and girls of all ages are invited to come sew with us. All skill levels are welcome.
Saturday, March 24th from 9am-4pm in The HUB
Aloha! Gerry & I are back from the Island of Hawaii and are experiencing culture and temperature shock..... we had a wonderful month away and now it's time to "get busy!".
This Saturday is Days for Girls Sew Day from 9 am to 4 pm at Garland Church in the HUB. The double doors into the church are on the north side of the sanctuary, off of the church parking lot. Bring your sewing tools, machines, yourself.... there are lots of different things to do..... you do not have to "sew" or "serge".... we have cutting, iron, unwrapping, folding, delinting etc, etc etc. If you can only come for a couple of hours... come!
We'll have a potluck lunch so please sign up below.
If you have questions, please contact me via email.
We always welcome donations of money, flannel fabrics, good quality cotton fabrics, PUL (waterproof fabric), panties, gallon size Zip Lock Bags, small bars of soap, washcloths, cones of serger thread in medium to dark colors (no black or whtie) and good quality cotton thread like Gutterman in medium to dark colors (no black or whtie). Days for Girls has specific guidelines for fabrics so see the "List of Criteria" link to the left.
Thank you in advance and I look forward to seeing you Saturday. Cherrie
