This program was initiated by Sister Lucienne Hebeisen, the wife of District Apostle Hebeisen. It is for the sisters to be able to have a knowledge about handicraft. They were taught basic techniques on how to do crochet. (Crochet means a handicraft which yarn made up into a patterned fabric by looping yarn with a hooked needle). Through this program, the sisters might able to make their livelihood project itself such as making customized garment or clothes, towel designs, cards or bags design and so on.
This are the materials needed in doing crochet:
Firstly, they need to have patterns and charts, craft needle and craft thread or wool.
After they were taught handicraft techniques, the sisters started to thread by itself with the given sample materials. Some are happy and excited and some are still confused but they were able to make it after trying repeatedly.
Afterwards, all handicraft materials were distributed to all sisters for them to be able to continue doing it at their home. They were so thankful and grateful for this great opportunity for it might help them somehow in the future.
In behalf of all minister’s wives, Sister Lucienne would like to extend their gratitude to the sponsors Sr. Linda and Bro. Alfred Zurflueh, who sent all the materials and making this event possible. And as a sign of great appreciation, the sisters made a thank you letter for the sponsors and they personally signed it.
