Handmade quilt by women in San Pedro Sula, Honduras

Description

Onayda's involvement in sewing for One Common Thread is a natural progression considering the sewing skills that run in her family. With her sister Mariella, as well as her sister-in-law Maribel, all involved in sewing, it's evident that this craft has become a shared passion and a means of income generation for their households.

Having regular work through One Common Thread has brought positive changes to Onayda's life. She mentions the enjoyment she finds in the new bed she has been able to purchase, which not only enhances her comfort but also signifies the improved quality of life for her and her family. Additionally, being able to afford milk and food items indicates a positive impact on their overall well-being and nutrition.

The collective efforts of Onayda, her sister, and her sister-in-law in sewing for One Common Thread showcase the strength of familial support and unity. They are leveraging their skills and working together to create positive changes in their lives.

By engaging in income-generating activities and accessing regular work, individuals like Onayda gain a sense of empowerment and the ability to improve their living conditions. Onayda has three children and sadly lost a set of twins last August 2023.  It was absolutely devastating for her and has been a source of much heartbreak and depression. 

By purchasing this quilt, you not only get a beautiful and cozy addition to your home but also support a hardworking mother who is trying her best to provide for her family. So why not bring home this gorgeous quilt and make a difference in someone's life today?
