The OUTREACH Program

Florida Tropical Weavers Guild Outreach at the Conference 2017

Again this year, Conference sponsored an Outreach Table featuring items (woven cloth and bags, baskets, felted animals, hand-beaded jewelry, etc.) from Guatemala. The items were supplied by Mayan Hands and UPAVIM. Both organizations work directly with artisans, helping them create and market their works. Their proceeds support improved economic well-being for the women artisans and also education for the women and their children.

FTWG elected to send 100% of the sales proceeds to the two organizations. Sales this year were $975 ($259 for UPAVIM and $716 for Mayan Hands), a lower figure than we'd hoped. Low attendance at conference, no doubt, was responsible in part for this number.
