Threads Across Pacific – Textile Business Development Workshop in Santo

“Twelve women in Luganville, were very fortunate to access brand new machines and trainers (Caroline Mason of Threads Across Pacific and Janeth Kaltovei) who empowered them with quality sewing techniques and skills and creating new products.  The immediate impact is quite easy to see – demonstrating traits of quality sewing and a significant shift away from the usual textile products towards new product designs aimed at the growing tourist market.  Caroline has inspired and empowered the women in a very special way. Two of these, Vanessa and Ileen live with disabilities.  We are looking forward with excitement to work with these 12 women over the next couple of years.”
