Learning Crochet & Admiring the Work of Pushaq Warmi in Chimbote, Peru

Twenty women showed up for the training sessions on Beginning Crochet.  Faith brought colorful yarns and crochet hooks for every participant.  She showed them basic loops and single and double crochet stiches.  Many of the women are experienced basket weavers.  So, with very little guidance they could catch on and crochet while visiting and laughing.

Jesca and Tere worked on several administrative tasks to fulfill requirements for grants.  They took a break to show the crochet class some of the handcrafts of Pushaq Warmi, our WGC collaborators in Chimbote, Peru.  The women admired the work of their fellow sisters across the continent.  They particularly liked the Christmas cards and ornaments.

After a wonderful lunch we went to the local coffee factory to buy gifts.  It was another great day!
