Help sew 'Little Dresses for Africa' July 19

Knit Sew Fabulous, a local sewing group, will hold its first meeting at Jo-Ann Fabrics and Crafts store in Roseville (20550 E. Thirteen Mile) from 6-8 p.m. July 19.

“We will make dresses and shorts for Little Dresses for Africa,” says group organizer Lynette Halalay of Grosse Pointe Park. (Little Dresses for Africa is a non-profit 5013, Christian organization which provides relief to the children of Africa.”)

This is a free event geared toward youngsters ages eight and older.

Those who have a sewing machine can bring it along to the meeting, and those who don’t have one, nor sewing skills, are still encouraged to attend. “There will be other things to do, like cutting and ironing (fabric),” says Halalay.
