02/07/12 The Plymouth Friendship Quilt Guild held a Superbowl Super Sew Saturday on Feb. 4, 2012 at the Life Enrichment Center in Plymouth. Ten ladies made 48 Little Dresses for African girls. This is a project that has received a lot of attention since Rachel O’Neal saw the need for clothing little girls in orphanages in Africa whose parents had died from AIDS.
The Plymouth group is a nonprofit organization and made the dresses from donated fabric and notions. They will send the finished dresses to Nancy’s Notions who will in turn send the dresses to the various locations in Africa. As of last November there have been 60,870 little dresses shipped.
There was also another group who made dresses from the Argos area when Brittanie Williams chose this for her senior project at Argos High School.
Ladies with the dresses they made are shown in the photo and who participated are: Barb Prusinski, Barb Strycker, Alice Ruiz, and Kathy Zentz, all from Plymouth; Jane Horvath, Carol Schmidlapp, and Linda Redinger from Argos; not shown are Patricia Ganshorn, Plymouth and Kay Horn, Rochester.
