On October 4th, a category 4 storm landed in Haiti displacing 1.4 million people in the worst disaster since the 2010 earthquake. Among those effected by Hurricane Matthew are many of the artisans we have worked with through the Artisan Business Network (ABN). ABN has worked extensively in Haiti since 2009 with a wide range of artisans living particularly in Jeremie, Les Cayes, Leogane, an Camp Perrin. 90% of their members have lost their homes and workspace due to the storm. Your support will make a difference in their lives.

Jennifer Day - Art Quilter added 8 new photos to the album: Branding at Day Ranch — in Vaughn, New Mexico.
Branding day at the ranch is a day of hard work. The United States government requires, by law in all 50 states, that all newborn calves be branded. This is a tradition that dates back to othe 1800's. Occasionally, a calf gets away as you can see in one of the pictures. The two cowboys were dragged as they tried to catch the cow! We branded 142 calves that day. My ranch manager, Amanda, gathered people from adjoining ranches to help. These cowboys and cowgirls will travel to another ranch each week to assist in brandings for no pay. This is tradition. I was in the pens with my camera, trying not to get run over by a fast horse! We will have 300 calves born this year in New Mexico. ... See MoreSee Less

Four years ago I took the picture of Judy in a small grocery store in Bend Oregon. I told her that I used my photographs in my art. She was very excited. I used her photograph in my quilt Judy for the exhibition Balancing Act. I tried to find her for permission to use her image in my book, but Ray’s Grocery was closed and she was lost. When I was at the quilt show in Houston last year I met Jan at the SAQA booth. She lives in Bend. She said she would try to find Judy. Success!!!! Judy now works at Walmart. Jan gave her a copy of my book which I inscribed to her. This circle is complete...The world is truly a small place! ... See MoreSee Less

Serenity and Esparanza are the little girls whose photographs I took in the inhabited dump, Chinandega, in Nicaragua. We had fixed a fish stew for the children of the dump for lunch. My son gave out candies to the kids as a treat after lunch. Serenity had grabbed a lolli-pop and scurried back to her home. I found her sitting in a chair next to the barbwire fence surrounding her small plot of land along the dirt road to the dump. She was relaxing after her meal with her Ty, January Rainbow, bear. As she watched me walk the dusty road, she put her head back on the chair. I snapped her picture, capturing this sweet tranquil moment. Esperanza also had returned home and was sitting in a cloth sling attached to a pole in her yard in front of her tin clad home. Esperanza has the look of worry as she watched me – the white woman with a camera – coming nearer. . I spoke with Esperanza and she told me that she wished she could go to school. She could read, but there were no books. It was her hope to leave the dump someday with her family. ... See MoreSee Less
