In 2010, after some contact with John Gunter about clothing needs in the Dominican Republic, a group of six ladies met in a member’s home.  We made about 85 garments for distribution in the DR by John, but because some members moved away and illness in the group, we disbanded for a while.
In early 2013, HHIM invited us to a brunch encouraging sewing groups, and by August we were able to secure a work room and equipment where we meet weekly on Wednesday.  Four of the original 2010 group were joined by four others.  We have sent several shipments to DR, Honduras and Haiti.  Other projects have included Christmas shoeboxes (60 in 2014, 100 in 2015, 100 in the works this year), assisted several of our church groups in projects, pillowcases for veterans, blankets, totes and other items for Alabama Baptist Children’s Home in Dothan, layettes for a ministry in SE Asia, and a current project of layettes for Sav-a-Life.
We have been generously supported by many in our church and others who have shared materials, equipment, and finances which have enabled us to do these projects.
