Sewing Grace Ministry

MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN LIVES ONE STITCH AT A TIME

Sewing Grace is a missions ministry of Magee First United Methodist Church.  One of our main projects is sewing "little dresses" (pattern available below) for girls in Central American countries.  Along with the dresses, which are delivered by BMDMI mission teams, we send  T-shirts for boys, blankets for babies, tote bags for mothers, and personal hygiene supplies. Sewing Grace is also involved in mission work here in Mississippi.  Volunteers create decorative pillow cases for residents of Methodist Children's Homes and Teen Challenge Ministries dormitories.  Another project is making port pillows for chemo patients at Blair Batson Hospital.  Please view the list below for ways to help make a difference in lives and share God's love through Sewing Grace Ministry.  

Make a Difference in These Ways:

1.  Spread the word by enlisting others to sew and contribute.

2.  Donate a few yards of cloth/fabric for those who volunteer to sew.

3.  Donate a new or gently-used pillowcase to be sewn.

4.  Volunteer to cut, iron, sew, size, and/or pack dresses.

5.  Contribute a monetary gift for purchase of cloth, elastic, and thread.

We appreciate your prayers and support. Catch the Spirit at Magee First  allows those desiring to make donations the opportunity to do so through a secure online process.


Sizing and Fabric for Simple Dresses:
Measured from the shoulder to the hem.  Fabric and pillowcases should be cotton or cotton/poly blends (cool and serviceable) in suitable lengths to sew dresses of these approximate lengths.  All lengths are welcome and much needed.

Small = Size 2, 3, 4  (16" - 23" long)
Medium = Size 5, 6, 7  (24" - 29" long)
Large = Size 8, 9, 10  (30" - 34" long)          
X-Large = Size 11, 12  (35" - 38" long)
