Handmade quilt by women in San Pedro Sula, Honduras
This retro quilt was made by Velkis and is a colorful and vibrant piece that brings back the nostalgic vibes of the 70s. Its bright colors and groovy design are reminiscent of the roller rink days, adding a touch of vintage charm to any space.
Velkis' story is truly inspiring. At just 27 years old and the mother of three children, she faces numerous challenges in her daily life. Living in a tiny home with chickens freely roaming around, she has experienced the difficulties of making ends meet and providing for her family. However, her involvement with One Common Thread has provided her with a valuable opportunity to sew and earn an income to support her children.
It's important to recognize the impact that organizations like One Common Thread can have on the lives of individuals like Nohemy. Through her dedication and craftsmanship, she is able to create beautiful quilts that not only showcase her talent but also serve as a means to provide for her family's needs.
By purchasing Velkis' retro quilt, you not only acquire a unique and eye-catching piece but also contribute directly to her well-being and that of her children.
