I’ve just returned from 6 weeks in South Africa. It was a truly rich and fascinating time. Veryan and I visited 9 women’s groups in various parts of S.Africa including the group called Mapula which means “Mother of Rain”. I’ll be posting more stories from my travels and what I learned by talking with women in South Africa: how they deal with their poverty, their courage and optimism and how the work of their needle keeps them and their families going.
I’ll let you know when I’ve updated my Flickr site so you can see more wonderful folk art available through African Threads.
