Today I had the wonderful opportunity to speak with Wayne Norman on his radio show, which aired on WILI 1400 AM. I spoke about my trip to Malawi with Little Dresses for Africa and about my upcoming sewing party on March 30th. It’s only about a week away. If you think you’d like to join us, please let me know what time you might be there. I have been informed that I can only have 4-5 machines going at once, so it’s helpful to have a head count.
Listen to me here as I sit down to talk with Wayne Norman. Forgive the pauses… it’s early :)
My friend, Louanne, is the leader of her daughter’s girl scout troop. Together, they are working on a badge while sewing dresses for my trip. Here is an email I received from her. It is a testimony to the community-building power of Little Dresses for Africa!
Thanks so much for introducing us to this mission; we are having a great time with it and learning so much. Thought today about the remarkable connections between my great grandmother, whose pin cushion we were using; my grandmother and her scissors which cut the fabric; my friends, the mother’s of my daughter’s friends, all helping to sew; you and the others on your mission trip delivering the dresses; and the women and girls in Malawi who should get some pleasure in wearing them- all connected by this project. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Thank YOU, to all of the wonderful people who are making this possible. It takes so many! And a big thanks to Wayne Norman for helping me build awareness for LDFA. Together, we are sending the message of love and hope… one little dress at a time.
