1648 ROCKLAND (at the corner of Terrace)

Artist Carole Sabiston is co-hosting, with the ICO Guatemalan Scarves-for-Stoves Team, a scarf sale in her beautiful home. We did a sale together two years ago and we are delighted that Carole has generously offered to host one again, as it was a great success - everyone loved it. This year we are especially excited as four of our team, who have been working with the weavers on new designs, have just returned from Guatemala with a whole new shipment of scarves and shawls. 

Many of you are already familiar with the work we’ve been doing in small impoverished Mayan villages, replacing open hearths (which are so bad for the health of families and for the planet) with clean-burning, made-in-Guatemala stoves. When you buy a hand-woven Mayan scarf for $20 to $40, you help provide a living for a village weaver, and also contribute towards a stove. And every penny we make goes towards the project: we pay all our own travel costs.

The Scarf Sale will be held a month before Mother's Day, so it is a great opportunity to buy a meaningful Mother's Day gift ... or a gift for yourself.

Our goal for this sale is to raise enough for 25 stoves - $3,200. Please join us and pass this on to any interested friends. Please note there is limited parking.
