The Garden of Eden

Embroidered by Mercy Nabatanzi from Mukono, Uganda, this piece measures 20” x 20”.  Mercy’s home is close to the capital city of Kampala.  Mercy and other needle workers in her group meet weekly to encourage each other and children they are also teaching to do this creative work.  Mercy may use the funds she receives from the sale of this piece to buy seeds for crops, pay school fees for her children, cover medical costs for her family, or make repairs to her home.

Bible Cover

Measures 11”x 7.5” x 2” – made of denim and lined with a contrasting fabric.  It closes with Velcro flap.  The embroidery creates a pocket on the outside.  The embroidery was designed and stitched by Abisagi Ayikanying in Uganda.  Abisagi lives in a small village in the district of Nebbi that borders Lake Albert to the south, the River Nile to the east and the Congo to the west.  Abisagi’s life revolves around caring for her family and her crops.  She meets weekly with her fellow needle workers.  The community they have developed encourages each of them and has significantly raised their confidence.
