I made an official visit to Grace, at the Praise Jesus Weaving Center, in Lawra. Grace was taught by Kente weavers to make a 18″ wide brocade cloth. She creates a unique fabric, which is delicate yet firm, using sewing thread. Grace has 12 apprentices who work for her in exchange learning a trade, in the hopes that one day they can start a business of their own.
Grace, like many of the weavers, sewers and dyers, requested I create a market for their goods. So I purchased fabrics, which will be for sale at the Institute for Labor Generosity Workers and Uniforms.
