after 11 years, still going strong!

11 years have passed since the great earthquake in northern Japan.
We are very proud of the ongoing collaboration with the Grandmas in Rikuzentakata. With the sewing machines donated by Bernina International, new bags, pincushions, cosmetic pouches and mask cases are being made from traditional Japanese textiles. The women in Rikuzentakata report how much this collaboration means to them. The work gives them a daily structure, income and above all a life task.
We are looking forward to another 11 years of cooperation with the courageous and admirable women in Rikuzentakata!
