Handmade quilt by women in San Pedro Sula, Honduras
This quilt top called Grandma's Garden In Maroons was made by one of our very newest Makers Elizabeth. Elizabeth, a mother of four children, discovered her passion for sewing when she began assisting her friend, Zoila, with her sewing projects. The income she earned from helping Zoila was not only beneficial for her family but also ignited Elizabeth's interest in sewing as a means of income.
Motivated by the positive impact it had on her family's well-being, Elizabeth joined One Common Thread as a Maker. This opportunity allowed her to not only work from the comfort of her own home but also fostered a sense of camaraderie as she connected with other Makers and formed friendships within the slums.
