"Creating Revenue through the Arts" mission project items are discounted as clearance sales at the end of each selling season. A new project is created annually during the winter in Guatemala. The quality is the same, but the size and color selection is less. However, if you find the right match the discount price is quite a savings!
“Creating Revenue through the Arts” mission project was developed eight years ago by Wendy Carpenter. Every year Wendy travels to Guatemala to work with the Mayan communities for three months. She teaches the women how to make contemporary clothing patterns, sew on machines, and market the clothing sewn with their beautiful hand weaved jaspe’ fabric. Wendy’s fair trade wage and volunteer teaching time provide a specialized skill and higher standard of living for the women, their families, and the Mayan community as a whole.
