Art and Craft 

Glenda Kirkiridis of Amafu fabric continues to donate the fabric for the “landscape” project undertaken by the Vukuzakhe group at Amandawe under the guidance of Ruth Seipp. This embroidery project continues to go from strength to strength and these landscapes are put on bags in America by Anne Jenkins of “The Point of Art” Gallery- for more on this project please look at www.thebagofhope.com. Sadly Ruth has relocated to Cape Town but we now have the very capable Cilla Puth assisting. Several machines have been donated and two new Singer machines have been donated through Weaverbird quilting in Australia and SAGA.

We are very grateful to all the people who donate wool and fabric to the groups and give of their expertise to teach.  Our special thanks to Tollgate Quilters in Durban who support the groups every month with donations of collected material and who help market the embroidered pieces.

Various craft projects are carried out by the other support groups. These include sewing, beading, and baking.
