Women at Work!

Following the April batik workshop in Haiti (see pictures with the April blog post), the women of Gonaives produced additional scarves which we have received and will market in the US.  Now on their own after just days of basic instruction, they are making wonderful progress with the art, but follow-up training and support is needed, and you can help!

Please consider becoming one of 35 needed project sponsors by contributing $100 (tax deductible).  We will send you a beautiful, hand-made (under artist supervision) Haitian batik scarf as a thank you!

The scarves are 100% cotton and measure approximately 15 x 60 inches.  They can also be used as belts, turbans, table runners, baskets liners, and curtains!

How to become a sponsor:

1. Write a check for $100 (or more!) payable to FIPE (write "Haitian Batik Project" on memo line)
2.  Include a note with your name, address, phone, email, and 3 or 4 preferred scarf colors
3.  Mail the check to Jan Lewis at P.O. Box 20211, Colorado City, CO 81019 
4.  You will receive a receipt along with your scarf

Questions?  Email Jan at or call 719-251-8243

Thank you!
