Threads of Blessings

Threads of Blessings

The group motto for the women of Threads of Blessings is: “Through our hands we can do anything” and with their hands they create the most incredible embroidered folk art. Each of their pieces is one-of-a-kind, fully imagined by the artist and hand-embroidered after drawing their design on the fabric. When we met them, the women in this group were creating large-scale pieces that could take as long as six months to complete and often would not sell within their local market.

By introducing them to the concept of smaller designs and decorative pillows (which are not common in Uganda), they are able to create more designs in less time, which provides more consistent and stable income. Since partnering with these women, we’ve provided sewing tools, fabric, templates, and facilitated training workshops with the group members.
