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.
Join us for the next Sew Day, November 10th!
Join us Saturday, November 10th from 9 am to 1 pm.
Hi Ladies, I hope you are enjoying this beautiful fall.... as I sit at my computer the sun is shining, the sky is blue and there are amazingly beautiful leaves everywhere!!! Loving it!!
Well.... it's time for another DFG Sew Day.... we meet this coming Saturday, November 10th, from 9 am - 1 pm in the HUB at Garland Church. Come prepared to work. We have lots to do!! Just received 180 yards of DFG Flannel from Arkansas and have at least 60 other yards of flannel.... all to be cut into 2 yard lengths!! Bring sharp rotary cutters, straight edge and a strong back!!
For those of you with machines.... we need sewing machines and Sergers......
For nonsewers.... we will put you to work!!
We will not have a lunch this time but will rely on snacks; hopefully some of them will have some protein to "strengthen us" for our labors.
As always... we need donations of $$, Girls cotton panties, cotton fabrics for bags and flannels for liners. If you have questions about specifics... please contact me via the form below.
We also need used but working irons and a couple of newer ironing boards. These are staples for our work and ours need replaced!!
Ladies, I'm looking forward to seeing you Saturday at Garland..... bring your work supplies, a snack to share and a cheerful attitude as we sew "For the Girls".... Cherrie & Darcy
