April meeting - Sreepur Village

Ruby Porter - a member of Merseyside EG branch - returned to Glossop to let us know about the progress being made at Sreepur village in Bangladesh.  Ruby's first visit to Sreepur was in 1990, she has since become a Trustee, and she has now made an astonishing 47 trips.

The village provides a safe haven for destitute women and their children, and Ruby's work focuses on a range of embroidery and textile projects.  She brought along some of the women's work for us to admire:-

Here are some close-up views of the beautiful stitching:-

Ruby also brought along an excellent selection of hand-worked cards, ecologically dyed and hand woven scarves and other hand-made items.  We feel very privileged to have learned about the work undertaken at Sreepur and thank Ruby very much for her visit today.
