The women of the North Suburban NeedleArts Guild are working really hard on making kits for Days for Girls for women and girls in Toliara, Madagascar - and even enjoying themselves doing so!
Our first completed shields:
So far we have 41 complete sets of shields and liners:
Quality control assures me that the liners are very soft!
We also have 53 shields, about 200 liners and a fair number of Ziploc bags, still waiting to be packed. With members to be made are around 100 liners, 70 bags, a lot of washcloths to be reinforced, and much fabric to be washed. We will need more hotel soap and panties (Hanes brand, girls sizes 6-12, in dark colours) - and more duffle bags to pack them all in to get them to Madagascar!
This is such an exciting project to work on together – and so worthwhile!
