On Friday, October 11, the cafe hallway came alive with the anticipation of transforming a simple pillowcase into a sweet little dress for a needy girl somewhere across the ocean. There was a room for cutting a pattern, a room for serging, and rooms for ribbon cutting, sewing, and ironing - and, oh yes, there was a room for delicious food too! In a little more than two hours, 127 pillowcases became 127 little dresses. These dresses will be packed into our shoeboxes at the Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Packing Party on November 8.
