Lots are happening

On Sunday I've the two girl groups who has again been given the task to make pictures on using water. The last before was about the desertfestival and their dreams of future. Then Kulvinder and I will plan for an exhibition in the village. Their relatives need to see what they make. SKSS will have som visitors on thuesday and that makes it suitable to show them also. Kulvinder found a teacher in sewing to teach women. Much better than if I do that. We have been to see a school secretary who has promised to find 2 teachers to do reading and calculating with women and girls during their holiday in April and March

W-O-R-L-D - E-M-B-R-O-I-D-E-R-Y - D-A-Y

Now I´m back home at my own computor and I will at least start to tell about our latest great effort. The 9 meters long banner for the World Embroidery Day. 4 groups of women of 10 persons each has composed the designs and embroideried them within the 18 letters. It will announce this celebration of embroidery all around the world. This year it will be on the 30 of JULY in a big Magazine in the most south peninsula of Sweden, Smygehuk. And Mahila aur Pani Embroidery Club will contribute by this giant work.
The women discussed different subjects for their joint work. It could be animals in the village; Women´s and men´s work/ boy´s and girl´s what do they do; About trees in our village.They got paper and coal for drawing.
Marriage,(this subject created many designs);The drawings were copied on cloth big as towels by me.and then they coosed yarn and took each her part for embroider.
Here is one of four letters about animals in the village...
and a detail...
About men and women: the father is a drinker, The mother tries to save the son from following him, and a neighbour woman tries to help. There are also pictures of the men´s habit to smoke...
Devi with the completed embroidery.
