Grandmother to Grandmother
Valerie Hearder has set up African Threads on her website as a support for the remarkable Grandmother to Grandmother campaign (run by the Stephen Lewis Foundation). Beautiful narrative embroideries made by women in sub-Saharan Africa are pictured and the sale of these will go to help the millions of orphans who have been left behind in the wake of the HIV-AIDS pandemic. The pictured embroidery of cattle is part of the Keiskamma Art Project, South Africa. See more African embroideries by clicking here.
