Handmade quilt by women in San Pedro Sula, Honduras
Neidy's large quilt, made in one of the most popular designs, showcases her talent and dedication as a maker. Her role as a mother of three highlights her commitment to providing for her family and creating a better life for them.
Being part of a community of makers and having sisters who share her passion for sewing creates a supportive environment for Neidy. The bond with her fellow makers fosters a sense of camaraderie and encourages her to continue honing her craft.
In addition to her sewing work, Neidy also manages a "tienda" store at the front of her home.
