CoFiA was recently invited to participate in events in Palisades Park and Leonia. In Pal Park, we had a table at the annual Health Fair where we were able to introduce the community to our work and display some of the beautiful fabrics hand-woven by women in the collective in Cajola, Guatemala. Angelica worked very hard to let Guatemalan families in Pal Park know about the Fair, and a good number of people came with their children. Many tables had nice giveaways which were much appreciated.
On the next day we had a table at the Leonia Day Fair, an event we have participated in for several years. This was held outdoors on a lovely day and again the crafts from Guatemala added a festive air.
