I have been sewing since early childhood, making my own garments on the old treadle machine since age 12. I loved making all clothing for my 2 darling little girls, and later taught machine and dressmaking classes for the Singer store.
More recently, I have been making quilts for my children and grandchildren, as well as quilted pocketbooks for friends and loved ones.
Now that I'm a retired great-grandmother with lots of energy, I was looking for something to do that could "make a difference." While searching the Internet for volunteer opportunities, I happened to see Dress-a-Girl Around the World. It seems like the perfect thing for me and I'm excited to be joining this wonderful organization!
