Craft Production with CFFI

CFFI fundraises by employing local women to create beautiful crafts with local and natural materials.  These crafts include bags, scarves, jewelry, napkins, and Dorise is always creating new designs!  Everything uses recycled materials, local fabrics, shells, sea glass or seeds collected in the wild.

For the past few days we've had a crew of women working and designing beautiful new crafts.  These skills generate employment and income, and teach women news skills.

Check L.A. Burdick stores in Walpole, NH and Boston, MA soon for new merchandise that will support CFFI projects with local farmers.

Crafts workers Kimon, Donica, Donna, Trisha and Dorise.
