A New Skill =

Artesanas I’xkoq’a were really happy to receive sewing lessons earlier this year along with new sewing machines  and supplies and they worked hard to learn this new skill.  After the earlier lessons we required they practice their sewing for a few months and then we began more lessons for them with their instructor, Gaspar.  They will now have 4 more months of lessons to really become proficient with their new skills.

What will these new skills mean to them?  It means new opportunities to earn money sewing their own handcrafts and also sewing for others in their community.  They will now be able to sew the hems on their handwoven napkins and placemats, make purses, pillows and so much more!

This group is very organized and always searching for ways to improve their handcraft business with improved or new skills and improved business practices.  We are very pleased to be able to help them by furnishing their sewing center and providing 7 months of sewing lessons.
