  1. are you still receiving Little Dresses for Africa? We’re having a first meeting of a ‘Crafting for Peace’ group at church and wanted to make these dresses if they’re still needed.

    • Diana,
      Yes, we’re still collecting them! Please send them to:

      Thanks for your readership and support.

  2. What a great way to give back and reduce that fabric stash that has been slowly turning into an uncontrollable mountain in my sewing room.

    Is there a deadline to submit your dresses?

    • Great news! I checked with the folks at Nancy’s Notions and there is no deadline for the Dresses for Africa. BUT…just because there is no deadline, don’t put it off. I know it is going to be hot here this weekend so it would be a perfect time for me to stay inside and sew up a few of these!
