A Day of Sharing in the Desert

We even got to milk a camel and try warm camel's milk, which is frothy, sweet, and delicious.

What can I say but...it was a day, I will never forget. A huge thank you goes out to Leila, Moza and her mother, and all the weavers of Ghayathi. We thank them for sharing their love of weaving with us and for letting us share our love of quilting with them. Though we speak different languages and participate in different customs and traditions, we all appreciate and respect the skill and passion that allows us to create things of beauty with our hands.

If you would like to know more about the weavers of the Western Region of the UAE, I invite you to watch the following documentary.
