Sewing Seeds of Peace

I recently participated in a focus group for Amani Ya Juu, a sewing and reconciliation project for marginalized women in Africa.  It was a privilege to preview their latest home and kitchen offerings, including fun hostess aprons and placemat & napkin sets like the one above.  We dreamed up ideas for pillows, talked batik and screen print techniques, and I left with an even stronger desire to visit the continent one day.  Of course, I couldn’t help but peek at the clutches below, too.
