Handmade quilt by women in San Pedro Sula, Honduras
Many quilters and makers here in the US have asked for more unfinished quilt tops to finish off themselves and so we have more available now!
Seastones was made by Juli and her daughter Skarleth. These two are apart of our original group of Makers and we are so proud of them. Once the pandemic hit in 2020 they had to flee the bordo (slum) where they had lived their entire lives to seek safety and refuge from the gangs that had taken over. At one point Juli was told to leave now (including all of her possessions) or she would be killed and her daughter, Nataly, would be sold. Most of us can't imagine a future that bleak.
Then in November 2020 the house we helped them build far away from the gangs was flooded by Hurricanes Eta and Iota that hit back to back. They were homeless living on a church floor for 8 weeks until the water receded and it was possible to rebuild. From there life has continued to be difficult but they are grateful to have sewing to help support themselves.
