Ayami, the MCV Sewing Project Supervisor, reports that Nettie Graulich’s program continues to thrive at MCV. The program continues to receive large orders from local businesses – such as a recent 340 piece order from the Makokola Retreat (a local resort). And thanks to the new “Nettie’s Sewing Workshop” sign alongside the Mangochi – Monkey Bay road, the project is beginning to get more drop in visits, including some tourists from abroad. The program maintains financial sustainability by selling the products that the tailors and trainees, mostly orphans, produce. Look for Nettie’s annual report on the blog early in 2015 for more updates on the Sewing Program at MCV.
