“I am wondering if any of you might know of any charities that might need sewing done? I recently found a group that wanted dresses made for the girls in Africa, however after completing about half a dozen I discovered that the group doesn’t exist anymore. I sent an email to another group but haven’t got any reply from them either. I am feeling at a loss at the moment because of being an “empty nester” and I am looking for charity work to do. I can sew and enjoy sewing so thought that would be a good place for me to start. Any help would be gratefully received, thank you”
