We have 3 yards of hand-batiked, fair trade cotton fabric from Global Mamas to giveaway!
Global Mamas is the NGO that I worked with in Ghana last month. They work with women who hand batik and sew, to create beautiful certified fair trade clothing and accessories to sell in Europe and the USA. The women who work with are paid well and enjoy classes and other benefits provided through Global Mamas. It was a fun experience to work with Global Mamas for the 2 weeks I was in Ghana, and I loved staying in the home of one of their seamstresses. It was a privilege to meet the women and staff at Global Mamas, learn from them, and work alongside them.
This fabric is Monsoon Mustard (one of their most popular colorways) and would be perfect for many of our patterns: 102 French Cheesemaker's Smock, 104 Egyptian Shirt, 110 Little Kittel, 112 Japanese Field Clothing, 119 Sarouelles, 129 Japanese Hapi and Haori, 131 Tibetan Chupa and Skirt, 135 Jewels of India, and 142 Old Mexico Dress.
Ends, March 31 at 5 PM (EDT) - so check it out and let your friends know!!
