Artisan Spotlight 


I was born in Bhutan in Sarbang State. As a child I remember watching the cows, buffalo and goats. In 1992 I had to leave with my husband and two sons so we could be safe. I was very sad but happy to be with my family. Once we reached the refugee camp my husband left and I never saw him again. A year ago I was proud to become a US Citizen. I returned to Nepal to visit the camps. It was very sad and I could only stay a few minutes. I like my life in the USA. There are systems and rules and this is what I like best. I also like making my life and history here. In the camps I used to weave and I still love weaving, knitting, sewing and working with beads.
