Members of the Sweetwater Woman’s Club, (SWC)  joined people from across the United States, Canada, Hong Kong, Australia, the U.K., Sweden, the Philippines, Uganda, and more to sew dresses out of new or very gently used pillowcases and fabric. They have joined together because they believe that every girl deserves the dignity of owning at least one dress.

Dress a Girl Around the World
Hope 4 Women International has been bringing dignity to women around the world since 2006. The California Federation of Women’s Clubs (CFWC) Southern District presented this international program to the 13 clubs in our area. SWC members made several hundred dresses for the Dress a Girl Around the World program. The dresses were hand carried by representatives to many other countries and to areas within the United States. SWC President Susan Lewis established this program which met one day a month for a sewing workshop. Committee Chair Nora Greife coordinated the sewing workshops and served as liaison with CFWC.
