There is always a message in the clothes I make – for me, stitching is storytelling.
The Migrant English Project Sewing Club brought me happiness. But when my mother passed away, I stopped going for a long time.
The people at Cowley Club pushed me to come back, helped me with my problems. They were kind to me during a very hard, strange time, and became my friends.
People see me now and they see I am happy.
I get energy from the kind people in my life – from the refuge, from the sewing club, from friends all over the world.
They push me to better my life for me and my son.
I want to say thank you, But words are not enough.
