The Happy Hustlers 4-H Sewing Project is sponsoring a countywide sew-a-thon from 9 a.m. to noon May 12 at Eastmoor UMC in Marion. Sewers, young and old, are welcome to bring scissors and machines and join in the sew-a-thon.
Participants will be making little girls’ dresses and boys’ shorts for African children using a simple pattern provided by http://www.littledressesforafrica.org.
The club is looking for donations of one yard or more of cotton fabric, pillowcases, and bias tape for dresses and new or lightly used T-shirts with or without words imprinted on them for shorts.
To make a donation, call Cathy Martin at (620) 381-0585.
