Serving by Sewing

Join Fredsville’s “Serving by Sewing” ministry as we begin meeting on the second Tuesday of the month. Our next sewing time is Tuesday June 14th from noon-4:00 p.m. to make pillowcase dresses for girls and shorts for boys. You’ll have a fun afternoon of fellowship and “Serving by Sewing.” And, you don’t have to know how to run a sewing machine. There are other steps in the process of producing these cute little garments and packing them for shipment to be used around the world. If you are not able to join us, please remember our ministry in prayer and with donations of pillowcases (new or gently used), elastic, thread, binding, ric-rac and buttons. Questions???
