House Of Hearts Potholders Are In The Mail….

Soma (in the middle) and some of the women who work at House Of Hearts.  They’re holding some of  the potholders they made when I was there.

The House of Hearts Potholders are in the mail!

Soma,who started House of Hearts, and I keep in touch through facebook messaging.  Luckily Soma speaks, reads and write English, so it helps make this all possible.

A few days ago Soma told me she was mailing the order of 100 potholders that the women at House of Hearts have been making.

I’m  having labels made for the potholders with the help of Sara Kelly (Sara will have her work in the Bedlam Farm Open House) and when it all comes together, I’ll be selling the potholder right here on my blog.

I already have a lot of orders and even  received some checks in the mail for the potholders.  Lisa, from the Round House Cafe wants to sell them in the new shop that will be in the cafe once it moves and reopens.

Soma is also sending me samples of some of the other things the women at House of Hearts are making and if there’s an interest in them, I’ll sell them on my blog too.

I’m thrilled at the idea of being able to help create another market for the work that comes out of House of Hearts.  It’s the ultimate way of empowering the women of Soma’s village in West Bengal, India and ensuring that they can care for their families and themselves.
