Hatch Studio & Gallery is excited to share bags with you from the Zambian Art and Craft Project! I will have these here for a very limited time... Pati Frey who founded this program along with the Murray family from Lititz who are currently living as Missionaries in Zambia, Africa are helping these women support their families by selling their bags here in the United States. Most of the women are supporting their own children on less than a dollar a day. Selling their craft is helping them move towards independence in earning a more decent income to provide food, shelter and education for their families. 100% of the money for each bag goes back to the artist who created it. The bags are all unique and are made from recycled plastic bags... all colorful and well constructed. The plastics are actually crocheted into all different styles and sizes. As I was walking through the rain the other day, I realized that these bags are perfect because water doesn't harm them! Here are the ones I have at Hatch and I'm offering for sale. If you do not live in the area, I will ship it to you. If you are interested in sharing bags with your own friends, you can contact Pati at PATIGOINGFREY@AOL.COM. Please let me know by Wednesday, October 21st if you'd like one... they sell quickly! Thanks for taking a look!
