We are in the midst of our trip in Memphis and it is coming quickly to an end. Monday and Tuesday were absolutely amazing. After getting through some first day hiccups we have gotten into our groove. On Monday we had 8 women sewing with us, representing Burundi, Somalia, Eritrea, and the Congo. There was a constant flow of different languages, sewing terminology, and laughter.
Tuesday we were flowing - everyone had a responsibility and we had it down. Some of us designed and cut bags while others helped the women directly. Of course, Denise is the only one with any sewing experience, so helping for the rest of us looks a little more like calling Denise over to help. All in all they have been wonderful days with some really wonderful women - each of them beautiful, with an incredible story of loss and new found hope.
