I would love to know the address so that I can send some mother and aunt were cross stitchers and I have so much thread that I would just love to pass on to such a worthwhile cause....if you have a moment go to to read about a project that I and about 20 other women were involved in.

Thank you.

Hello Julie:
I have lots of contact with women's groups who'd just love to have embroidery threads. They tun it into desperately needed income to feed their families. I'll contact you by email with contacts, Julie.

If any one else is interested in sending threads to African women's groups, email me and I'll send you some addresses to ship to.
