Grace Oyenyboth created the floral abstract on this apron. The 28" x 28" apron, made of heavy neutral canvas, has a patch pocket and ties.
Grace lives in Erussi – a small, beautiful, village close to the Congolese border in northwestern Uganda, nestled in a valley surrounded by mountains. Being isolated with little means of travel except walking or an occasional bus, it is not unusual for the people to walk tens of kilometers each way to market in the nearest town.
Grace will use the funds she receives for her needle work to provide education for her children; medical support; seeds or fertilizer for her crops; repairs for her home, or build a new one.
Grace meets weekly with her fellow needle workers. The community they have developed through Threads of Blessing encourages each of them and has significantly raised their self-esteem.
