I got a package from Soma at House of Hearts in India today.
It’s 50 totebags and I’ll be selling them in my Etsy Shop as soon as I unpack them and take some pictures.
I’m glad to still be working with Soma and the women at House of Hearts. When I visited them in India last year, I never imagined I’d still be selling there work and supporting them in their effort to make a living for themselves and their families.
Just seeing the package brings me back to when I was there showing the women who work at House of Hearts how to make potholders.
I remember the heat, the home made meal (which was delicious) and being excited to work with the women. We didn’t speak each other’s language, but we all spoke “sewing”. I showed one woman (I don’t remember her name now) how to make one potholder and that’s all it took.
I never imagined, that over a year later, I’d still be selling their potholders and now bags.
