We just learned of the need for sewing supplies ( needles, thread, scissors, thimbles) for some of the women’s groups that make the beautiful handcrafts for us. In addition to backstrap weaving they also sew, embroider and do beading in order to help support their families. They make beautiful coin purses and other bags, embroidered items for the home, beaded handbags and many more handcrafts. The embroidering and beading takes its toll on their hands and fingers because many of them work without thimbles.
We have started a fund to help the women purchase needed supplies for their work. Can you donate $20 towards helping these women do their work more efficiently or can you send your extra packets of needles, thimbles, scissors, safety pins or thread to our offices. Please send to Education And More at P.O. Box 201 Burlingame, KS 66413
We are heading back to Guatemala soon and will take all donations for the women’s groups directly to them.
