We are heading to Haiti in less than a month and are still taking sewing supply donations to use during the classes we will be teaching, and to donate to the vocational school for future use. Below is a list of suggested times

  • Fancy Fabric – satins, taffeta (anything you might make a bridesmaid or flowergirl dress out of.) We can take smaller pieces, but would prefer to have lengths of at least 4 yards.
  • hook and eyes and/or snaps
  • zippers
  • good quality thread
  • needles, both for machines and hand-sewing
  • sewing scissors
  • seam rippers
  • binding material and/or prepackaged seam binding
  • tape measures
  • rotary cutting board and rotary cutters
  • straight pins
  • misc. sewing supplies
  • cash donations to purchase new items

In addition, the head of the vocational school is interested in a serger sewing machine. If anyone happens to  have one of these they’d like to donate or knows of a way we could purchase one inexpensively, please let me know.

Feel free to email me at 500dresses@gmail.com if you have any questions. Thanks!
