Our final week

Next week will be our last week here in San Lucas. We have done a lot and yet feel there is so much left to do! We will be focusing on three major things in the next several days:
1. Working with the women of Ajkem’a Loy’a to organize, plan, practice and promote workshops for tourists – in beading, backstrap loom weaving, and jewelry making.
2. Redesign their store and association’s logo (stay tuned for before & after pix!)
3. Continue refining their construction skills in patternmaking and sewing to facilitate new product development.

Stay tuned for some final images, outcomes, and most importantly, next steps…
