Chicago meets Fabrica Social!

On June 20th, 2oo9, the US supporters of Semillas (Mexico City-based nonprofit women’s fund) organized a benefit event to support Semillas’ support of artisan groups.  Semillas has been a key supporter of Fabrica Social projects from the start, so it was great to meet their counterparts in the US (all very inspiring women). 

At this event, we organized a sale of the artisans’ designs, which were a big success with the events’ atendees!  Josefina Jimenez, Teotitlan del Valle artisan/designer, was in attendance to share her experiences as a collaborating artisan along with the support of Marcela Salazar of Semillas and Fabrica Social’s Nadia Williams.
