Help make an at-risk girl feel like a princess

The Durham Fair Foundation and Durham Fair Needlework Department have once again teamed up to help those in need. This year, the groups are supporting Dress A Girl Around the World (

Our goal is to restore a sense of worth to vulnerable girls suffering from extreme poverty.

Imagine a little girl being given a brand new, beautifully-made dress created just for her. Picture her twirling around in joy and smiles, like a princess.

For most of these girls, this would be a new, exhilarating experience.

Join us Saturday, March 11, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Middlefield Community Center, 405 Main St. All levels of sewing ability welcome.

We’ll supply dress kits for participants, who will learn how to make French seams, sew pockets and make a hem.

Participants should bring a sewing machine, scissors and thread. Some sewing machines will be available.

To register, call Susan Dorvilliers at 860-306-9024 or email (put Dress in subject line).
