    My passion for embroidered quilt squares and hangings made by women's groups in South Africa who support families with their stitchery. 15% of profits donated to the Stephen Lewis Foundation Grandmothers Campaign. Also check out the amazing Zulu bead necklaces!

Hi Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, a cool site I like

Sally Sellers

I am an enthusiastic collector of these textiles. The colors and textures are invigorating, and the stories behind them are fascinating as well as educational. They help me to understand what life is like outside of my own little suburban USA neighborhood.

Thanks for your your enthusiasm for these wonderful stories in cloth. Yes, they do inform us and connect us to women's experience in Africa.
