May Projects from Wool, Mud and Paper!

??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????May 27, 2013  Although we had a small turnout for the meeting, we had interesting things to share.  Suzan brought beautiful sweaters and shawls and Bev worked on knitting socks. Cathy brought her completed mud cloth placemats and sewing kit and a newly printed book written by her husband, Chuck.

???????????????????????????????“Meet Mr Harry: An American in Guatemala” is a children’s book about how Chuck’s friend, a retired school teacher from cold, blustery New York chose sunny Central America as his retirement home. He makes many friends, including 3 neighbor children and begins a new life.

Proceeds from the book go toward supporting English language classes for girls, especially. When they are older, they will be able to get better paying jobs to support their families. Unfortunately, many men abandon their families, leaving the women to support their children alone.

Support that helps the girls to become better educated encourages them to put off having families until they are better able to find well-paying jobs. Find out more by going to Mr Harry Foundation.

We enjoyed looking through several books, including one on Mud Cloth.
