Maiwand sewing training

Got some photos in email today.  Pretty sweet.

But, before I forget, yes — there is still time to put bundles into the mail.  The goal remains to try and get stuff into the mail this month — well, this week.

But now, photos.

    its great to see pictures of the ladies sewing! it helps put a face on the people we’re sending these bundles to. that’s the first time i’ve seen a hand cranked sewing machine…i learned on a treadle machine that belonged to my Grandma but the hand crank is a new one on me 🙂 thanks for sharing these pics with us. Hugs to you and everyone else making this possible! Dawn

    Touching hands and making friends. That’s what it’s all about.

    wonderful to see what these women are creating in their fairly primitive conditions. hand crank sewing machines while sitting on the floor, and wearing a burka. wonderful clothes!

    I sent my last ABOL…school supplies.
    Art, THANK YOU for giving us a glimpse of life in other countries. it is easy to forget how fortunate Americans are to be able to put our hands on things just because we want them. This particular project makes me think of women touching women a world apart. Thank you for letting them know we care. maggieb!
