Thanks to a sewing machine generously donated by Tanya in New Hampshire, CFFI has expanded our crafts again! We’re continuing to work with the African textiles Dorise collected from a trip to Port-of-Spain, Trinidad.

Rita Julien, who also makes beautiful recycled plastic bags for CFFI, is working full-time on the sewing machine and is currently making a variety of beautiful shoulder bags.

In addition to these bags, we will continue making napkins as well as baby carrier wraps! Thanks Tanya for your generous support as we continue to train local women in crafts.
