ANDREA’S CLOSET

 
Andrea's Closet
Andrea’s Closet is an outreach ministry of the Missions Department at GraceLife Church.  The idea behind this ministry was brought to us by one of our  members, Linda Shankles, and that is the idea of… “The Pillowcase Dress”.  In short, the pillowcase dress is typically made from… you guessed it… pillowcases.  Once the dresses are made they are sent out around the world to young girls in need.

We meet as a group one Tuesday evening a month and one Saturday morning a month for a special time of preparing the dresses.   These gatherings are much like a scrapbooking club; however, instead of making scrapbooks, we are making dresses for missions.

The dates for these gatherings change from month to month according to  the availabilty of space.   Many of our sewers make the pillowcase dresses on their own at home and bring them in once they have completed them.    Please check this page often to see when our next workshop will be and where the dresses will be going.  Or contact our Church office for more details at 770.971.4232.

To date we have sent dresses to:

  • Cuba
  • Gallup, New Mexico
  • Haiti
  • Indonesia
  • Israel
  • Philippines
  • Thailand
  • Uganda
