Indonesian Mother Sews Halloween Costumes For 60,000 Children

PONTIANAK—Indonesian factory worker Weninng Panggi is keeping busy in the weeks leading up to Halloween by sewing costumes for thousands of children across America's Eastern Seaboard. "I try to put a little extra love in each seam I stitch, or epoxy, or hot-glue, or heat-seal," said Panggi, putting the finishing sequined touches on 1,375 Hermione dresses. "I only wish my family could afford such durable, high-quality garments. By the way, what are these for?" After completing her shift, Panggi carried out her tradition of going from door to door asking for scraps of food.
