|Delcie Wardrop||Lawson NSW||I love teaparties and creating beautiful things to sell at my local markets. So I was delighted to read about Hope4women's work blessing widows with teaparties and pampering and business training and the 'Dress a girl around the world' campaign. I am pleased to start my involvement by sewing pillowcase dresses.|
|Crafty Mamas||Victoria||Thank you from Dress A Girl Australia|

|Samantha Richards||Woollongong, NSW||me and my sewing machine...hope to make this world a better place. you are inspirational|
|Therese DelaCruz||Central Coast NSW||I thought I will never have the chance to use my sewing machine(still in a box) until I came across your website. Thank you.|
|Jenny Grey||Sydney Australia||What an inspiring work you are doing! Keep it up.|
|Talia Foster||New Zealand||I have just seen the dress a girl website and I was wondering if there is anyone in New Zealand helping out? I thought emailing the Australian partner would be the best place to start finding out more. Looking forward to hearing from you.|
|Krystl Elliott-Howell||Canberra||I have found you on the Dress a girl website as the Australian representative and I would like to tell you that I would love to help in making dresses for these girls. I currently live in Canberra and am in the Navy so I don't have a lot of spare time but I am quite the sewing enthusiast. I would love to incorporate my skills and passion to make these dresses and for a bit of fun I recently made a prototype, however just from fabric the same size as a pillowcase as I didnt have any lying around! Please let me know how I can help with this organisation! Also, have you heard any interest from anyone else in Canberra? Many thanks,|
|Erin||Sydney||I am interested in making a dress (or two, or more) for the Dress a Girl program in Australia. Can you please send me more info on the size or type required, and anything else that I may need to know. Thanks.|
|Tabitha||Australia||Hi, I think you're doing great work. I'm so pleased to find an Australian "Dress a Girl" representative. So often when I come across great sounding charities on the Internet I find they're located in the USA and so postage etc. make it difficult to contribute, and also they're often not helping pacific rim and other nearby countries, and I sincerely believe we should look after those close to home first.|
I will make some dresses to send to you for Christmas. I love sewing and I have a 3 yr old daughter who I love to make dresses for, but I realised the other day if I keep making her a dress a week she'll have 52 dresses in a year's time, and no little girl needs 52 dresses!
Can you tell me what sizes you think would me most useful? I'm only used to sewing from babies to size 4 so if there is a need for these that would be easiest, but if there's a real need for larger sizes I'm happy to give that a go too.
Also, are trousers for boys useful? I have a trouser pattern that I've used for both my kids and I know I can whip up a pair in 25 minutes - much quicker than a dress! Also I feel sad for the brothers who don't get anything when their sisters get a lovely dress. Girls could wear them too, although I know my daughter only wants to wear dresses.Thanks.

I have been sewing for myself and my family for forty years, and love to create things.We have plenty for ourselves these days, so it would be good to sew for others.
I also knit - is there a place for knitting in this campaign?

|Yvonne Edmonds||Quakers Hill NSW||Enjoy sewing and other crafts.|
|Frances||Canberra||After despairing about the crates of fabric in my sewing room that never seemed to diminish I searched the internet for a charity for whom I could sew. I know that I could have simply given the fabric to a charity shop but I wanted to give something of myself along with it. This project 'ticks all the boxes' for me in every way. It allows me to utilise one of my favourite hobbies, reduce my fabric stash, and even more importantly support a very worthwhile cause. Another huge plus is that Gigi seems to have solved the problems of distributing parcels to overseas institutions without them being syphoned off in Customs. Whilst I love the sewing aspect of this project, I also love spreading the word and encouraging other ladies to become involved. I believe that they will gain as much from supporting this project as the girls and boys who receive these dresses and shorts - all sewn with love and the desire to help those who have so little. Their huge smiles is all the thanks we need.|
I have become a sewer only recently while looking for a new interest/challenge but when I discovered your website it made me so glad that I could use this new hobby to help girls around the world. I'm finishing up my first ever dress and will send it and maybe more shortly.
This is a fantastic campaign and I'm looking forward to being part of it.

|Wendy Yates||Swan Hill Vic|
|Lesley||Sydney||I first heard about this only a couple of weeks ago when I was in California at Calvary Chapel Chino Hills and the amazing women of the Agape Stitches group who I met and was sitting in with to learn how they established their prayer shawl ministry told me they also contributed to this and that the dresses are so easy to make that even someone like me (who doesn't sew) could learn to do it, I was so excited by the prospect of this and even more so to learn that we have a representative here in Australia. Brilliant, well done, how can I help?|
|Megan||Port Macquarie, AUSTRALIA||I'm a Registered Nurse and mother of 3 children (Indiana 5, Meadow 4 and Harrison 2) I started sewing in late 2011 to cope with the grief of losing my much loved Polish grandmother.

|Jean Lobb||New Gisborne Victoria||I heard of your campaign from a friend who has already made many dresses for Dress a Girl Australia and I thought, what a wonderful idea! I love sewing and decided I would commit to making ten dresses for a start. I had two sons so couldn't indulge in making pretty things for them, then two beautiful granddaughters! Joy! But one has so many she doesn't need more and the other doesn't like to wear skirts or dresses. So, it's my pleasure to sew for needy children.|

The ASG runs a variety of sewing events every May to celebrate and raise the profile of sewing as a worthwhile hobby or career - it is called 'Sewing MAYhem'.

As half of our group are also patchworkers we have lots of left over cotton fabric to create these dresses.|

Will make more sizes 8 and 10 since I read that that is what you need more of but I would really really love to make smaller sizes too, if you need those. I have some fabric put aside, perfect for below 5! :)|
thanks for the amazing coordination job you do :)

Apart from making dresses (of course!) how else can I help? I live on the Sunshine Coast, Qld.
My daughter travels to India once a year. Of course I would check with her & dependent on your drop off location she may be able to take parcels with her.
Great work! Every girl does deserve a dress!
Kind Regards Helen Wodetzki

|Rhonda Punzet||Speers Point NSW|
|Brenda Dean||Tyabb Vivtoria||I heard about this campaign through the Popular Patchwork quilting page.|
The girls there are making dresses but they are in the UK so I googled the same in Australia and came up with your page.
I am a member of local quilters group and we have what we call a caring quilt programme but dresses would add variety to our charity work. We have a membership for almost 100 and it would be great if everyone could make a dress.
I will give the information to everyone at our next meeting.

|Maureen Hills||Neutral Bay||Several years ago I met up with the Dress A Girl Around The World ladies when staying with my son and daughter in law in Phoenix Arizona.

|JANINE TOFT||DARWIN||2 years ago I made a number of soft toys for a hospital drive. I swore then I would make something every year and already I have missed 2014. I work long hours but get a lot of enjoyment from doing craft work. My supplies for sewing have diminished, so I went and brought a load of t-shirts to add buttons, ties and colourful skirting to. I'll probably not get many done for the current drives but would love to make some ready in a month or 2.|

|Rita Bascombe||Port Lincoln South Australia||I do a lot of charity work and I read the story in Country Threads and thought it is a good idea as I have so much material to sew as I have made a lot of quilts.|
I am sure a lill individual pretty dress can lift the spirits of anyone child living in difficult circumstances. And boys in something their own too
I think the cause is fantastic on so many levels
Even outback indigenous kids would be just as excited.
I am looking forward to reading more about your vision and gaff achievements already made.
I am not a great sewer, but I am sure I could learn and get some other people on board.
This charity is achievable and the benefits are felt both ways.
|Anne Maitland||Edmonton.Cairns Qld.4869||I am very involved with the QCWA and we have a handcraft group who I will tell about your cause and see if we can get some volunteers working on this very worthy cause.
