Artisan Spotlight 


I am from Guatemala. Guatemala is a beautiful country and I love it. I had to leave because it was becoming very dangerous. I moved to the United States to be with my daughter and her family. When I was a little girl my mom used to sew. She taught me how to sew but I didn’t get to do it much since I had to do other work for my mom so she could sew and support us. After I got older I forgot about sewing until I came to the Welcome Project. There I had a chance to sew again and make new friends. I am so happy and thank God each day for the Welcome Project.
