Great story, great partners

To The Editor:

Thanks so much for the great story by Whit Griswold with photos by Ralph Stewart of our Dress A Girl Around the World sewing event.

There is one important point I need to add. Lowely Finnerty of Vineyard Haven was my partner in planning and executing this event, and she contributed a lot of the materials for making the dresses. We really did it together.

I would also like to acknowledge contributions of fabric by Susan Branch and pillowcases from Bramhall and Dunn and LeRoux at Home. We were delighted to have such beautiful materials to work with, and we envision that the little girls who receive the dresses will be overawed and so pleased.

Thanks to all of you, and to all the women and children who showed up and made dresses.
