Zoila made this quilt and it is super fun and bright rainbow of scrappy colors. Zoila is a mother of two and works very hard to keep them in school and well fed. She is so grateful for the opportunity to work for One Common Thread and have consistent employment.
She has lived in the bordo for 14 years She has a daughter, Yacxiri, and she is 13 years old and a son Julio who is 12 years old. Yacxiri and Julio were born in the bordo and go to school there. Here is a message from Zoila,
" I am very grateful to God first because he put in my path to good people like Courtney and her family because thanks to them I can have a job by way of making the quilts helps me a lot for our support to buy what we need in our home. I also thank them for buying my quilts, I sew them with a lot of love with my heart. Every design on the quilts fills me with a lot of enthusiasm to be able to finish and sell them. My hobby is to be sewing for you and free moments I work in my humble little house that I share with my daughter. My dream is one day to be able to have my own humble little house and that my daughter can complete her studies. I only managed to go to sixth grade and I am very grateful for your great blessing. Thank you for being part of the group of enterprising women fighters, that today helps us to survive. I give you infinite thanks for your great support."
