Handmade quilt by women in San Pedro Sula, Honduras
Wendy's journey and the quilt she made, Wild Garden, reflect both resilience and hope. Despite the challenges faced by her family, including the need to relocate due to threats of violence, Wendy has remained dedicated to her craft and to supporting her loved ones.
At 38 years-old, Wendy is a mother of two children and a grandmother to three grandchildren. Her husband's connection to Ruth, Jocelin, and Juli, who are also part of One Common Thread, highlights the interconnectedness and support within the community.
Even after moving to a new city, Wendy continues to sew for One Common Thread, traveling by bus to turn in her quilts and receive more projects to work on. The donations from the organization have not only provided her with a new house but also allowed her family to have beds instead of hammocks or sleeping on the floor. The support has made a tangible difference in their lives, offering comfort and stability.
