Peredasi Tibihikirra embroidered the vining flower that decorates this 13" x 11" x 3" stand-up pouch. The outer fabric is dark denim, the lining is blue and black print, and the zipper matches the tapestry background.
Peredasi lives in southern Uganda, in the diocese of Ruwenzori close to the Rwandan border – a particularly beautiful area known as the “Switzerland” of Uganda. Her life revolves around caring for her family and her crops.
Peredasi 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-confidence. Shewill use the funds she receives from her needlework to provide education for her children; medical support for herself and her family; seeds or fertilizer for her crops; and maintenance and repairs to her home.
