Handmade quilt by women in San Pedro Sula, Honduras
Bersa's dedication to her craft has been unwavering, and she has been a reliable and committed helper to her daughters. Together, they have worked diligently to create handmade pieces with care and precision. This collaborative effort not only strengthens their family ties but also showcases their shared passion for sewing.
The excitement Bersa experienced when she acquired a refrigerator upon starting her work is a testament to the positive impact that employment and stability can have on someone's life. It symbolizes the progress and improvements that can be achieved through hard work and determination.
As Bersa's living situation is on the verge of changing, there is anticipation for further positive developments. This signifies a new chapter in her life, and the support she receives from One Common Thread plays a significant role in bringing about these transformative changes.
The quilt itself, featuring a repetitive hexagon design, reflects Bersa's creativity and attention to detail. Its larger size makes it suitable for use as a throw quilt, providing warmth and comfort during colder seasons.
