Then, a week or so ago, they reached out to me again. And I finally took the time to look at their website and their products. What I found out blew me away. VIDA is a global collaboration of creators, pairing designers from around the world with makers in Pakistan. They offer beautiful, original products made in accordance with high ethical standards. And, best of all, part of the proceeds is used to create literacy programs for the makers.
This video explains it better than I can:
Incredible, huh? How could I pass up an opportunity to make my quilts into wearable, beautiful products? And to also benefit the makers? I couldn't!
So last weekend I went through my portfolio and selected a few pieces I thought might work.
THE SALT MARSH NEAR FIRST ENCOUNTER BEACH:
I made this piece after attending a lecture by Professor Stephen Hawking. Did I understand even a fraction of what he said? Of course not! But the image of strings of particles zinging off into space stayed with me.

VIDA also offers other types of clothing and accessories. I am admittedly a bit scarf mad, but I wanted to see how one of my patterns would look on a blouse. Well, I love it!
