The Clean Cut: 99-year-old woman sews nearly 1,000 dresses for African girls
Lillian Weber of Bettendorf, Iowa, wakes up every morning and begins to sew another dress that she will donate to young girls in Africa. As Weber approaches her 100th birthday next May, she hopes to have made 1,000 dresses.
"It's just one of those things that you learn how to do and enjoy," Weber told News 8. "When I get to that 1,000, if I'm able to, I won't quit. I'll go at it again because there's no reason to not do nothing."
Weber's dresses are donated to a Christian nonprofit organization, Little Dresses For Africa.
